EVALUATION OF NATURAL ZEOLITE AS SORBENT MATERIAL FOR THE REMOVAL OF ACETIC ACID FROM AQUEOUS SOLUTIONABDAL-KAREEM AND M.A. DAWAGREH
The aim of this paper is to study the possibility of the use of natural zeolite for the removal of acetic acid from aqueous solution. Zeolite collected from a were taken either at different places was assessed for its ability to absorb Acetic acid from aqueous solutions after preliminary treatment. In Jordan, zeolites are found in the following locations: zeolitic tuffs are located at Jabal Aritayn (JNZ-4), Tlul Al-shahba (JNZ -2), Tal-Rimah (JNZ-3) and Northeast Areas (JNZ -1). Jordanian zeolitic tuff content in these tuffs varies from (20% to 50%). processing routes, zeolite concentrates with grades up to 90% were achieved. Removal of acetic acid from wastewater has been investigated using adsorbents based on Jordanian zeolitic tuff from different places (JNZ-1, JNZ -2, JNZ -3 JNZ-4). In the present studies, therefore, an attempt has been made to prepare adsorbents from natural Jordanian zeolites and use them for the removal of acetic acid from dilute aqueous waste. The effects of acetic acid concentration, adsorbents dosage, contact time, temperature, were studied in batch experiment. The removal is most effective with activated. A maximum removal of around 41.82 was achieved under the conditions of the experiments.
