“AquAsZero” is the Winner of the 1st prize in the field of Innovation in “Greece Innovates” 2011,a competition for Applied Research and Innovation promoted by the Association of Greek Industries and Eurobank, Greece.
AquAsZero general objective is the development of low cost single iron and binary ferric-manganese adsorbents of arsenic from potable water, while the spent adsorbents can be safely and easily disposed. The preparation of such binary Fe-Mn oxy-hydroxide involves the precipitation of Fe2+ - from the low-cost iron source of FeSO4 - oxidized by KMnO4 which also acts as the manganese source.
The purpose of the scientific part of the project is to understand the effect of the material’s physico-chemical characteristics in the arsenic adsorption capacity and select the optimum reaction conditions and dewatering of the oxy-hydroxides sludge method.
The parameters associated to the laboratory production of the qualified adsorbent will be used in the design and the construction of the prototype unit.
