  5. REMOVAL AND RECOVERY OF HEAVY METAL IONS FROM INDUSTRIAL WASTEWATER USING IMMOBILIZED ALGAE

    SBC: Bio-recovery Systems, Inc            Topic: N/A

    THE PLATING AND ELECTRONICS INDUSTRIES ARE REQUIRED BY STATEAND FEDERAL REGULATIONS TO REMOVE TOXIC, HEAVY METALS FROM WASTEWATER STREAMS BEFORE DISCHARGE. THE SEMICONDUCTOR AND AND PRINTED CIRCUIT INDUSTRY ALONE REMOVED OVER 7.2 TONS OF HEAVY METALS FROM WASTEWATER IN 1983. MUCH OF THE RECOVERED METALS ARE DISCARDED AS SLUDGES, BECAUSE TECHNIQUES FOR RECOVERING AND SEPARATING THE METAL IONS ARE U ...
