**REMEDIATION OF WASTEWATER CONTAINING HEAVY METALS USING RAW**AND MODIFIED DIATOMITE Miloš T. Nenadović**The main goal**• To investigate structural changes in diatomite • Changes caused by mechanical milling with magnesium hydride • It is very important to know what is going on with lattice parametar of Mg-hydride.**There are two types of raw diatomite**• The first one is CYLINDRICAL**The second one has rod like particles**• This two diatomites has the same chemical structure, but configuration is tottaly different. • Diatomite is completly natural product!!!**What is happened next?**• Magnesium hydride was premilled for 10 hours • Then diatomite was added and the milling was performed for another 1 hour. • Milling speed of 850 rpm was chosen for the purpose of this study • And then we have got something like this!!!!**Structural changes**• This is the sample MgH2-diatomite composite • Ratio MgH2 : diatomite = 90 : 10**Structural changes**• This is also MgH2 – diatomite composte but ratio between this two constituents is • MgH2 : diatomite = 10 : 90**Structural changes**• We can see some changes in the structure of diatomite and Mg-hydride • It is strongly depend of the ratio of constituents • The sample with 90 % of diatomite shows sponge like structure • It is better for sorption of heavy metals**XRD analisys**• It shows very close moving to the smaller values of 2Θ angle. • That is very important because it proves increasing of the lattice parameter. • Better removal capacity.**Conclusion**• Investigation demonstrated that diatomite has a higher removal capacity for Pb2+, Ni2+, Cu2+, Hg2+ and Cd2+ from water than untreated diatomite. The adsorption capacity of modified diatomite increased by decreasing the quantity of magnesium hydride deposited on the surface.
