COMPARISON OF ALUMINIUM SORPTION USING INORGANIC AND ORGANIC NATURAL SORBENTS

Danka BARLOKOVÁ, Ján ILAVSKÝ, Eleonóra FRANKOVÁ, Tomáš MOLNÁR

Abstract

Aluminium is the third most abundant element on the Earth. Most often it is tightly bound in rocks. On acidification of the environment with acid rain or civilization interventions, there is a release of aluminium in rocks bound to the soluble form of aluminum salts. The effects of acidification are in the final phase of ecosystems visibly unsafe (damage to crops, mortality of fish in lakes and rivers, etc.). The results of laboratory tests with a strain of Penicillium glabrum and Natural zeolit – cliniptilolit to estimate the sorption efficiency for removal of aluminum from water are presented.
