Abstract
This SBIR Phase I project will demonstrate the feasibility of an innovativeelectrochemical process for high efficiency simultaneous recovery of mixed heavymetals from contaminated groundwater. Electrochemical recovery of metals fromwastewater is a promising approach for metal recycle. However, the conventionalelectro-chemical method is not efficient to treat dilute wastewater.Additionally, when the wastewater contains two or more heavy metals, the metalwith the more negative reduction potential is difficult to recover. For example,when wastewater containing the mixture of copper and lead is treated, lead canbe removed efficiently only after the copper concentration is much lower than thelead concentration. Faraday Technology's innovative approach will demonstratean efficient, simultaneous electrochemical/ion-exchange process.
