Adsorption modification for nitrate removal
I am trying to remove high levels of nitrate from water by adsorption using pumice and perlite aggregates.
The mean diameter of aggregates is ~5 mm.
I tried using iron-modified pumice and adding the hydrochloric and sulfuric acid but these methods are not giving the satisfactory results.
I would appreciate your advice on how to remove nitrate more efficiently. Which parameters should I change and how? Which modifications can I apply to get better results?
