Heavy Metal Removal Using Peat/Wetland Treatmentby Suzanne Murawski, Univ of Wisconsin-Milwaukee, Milwaukee, United States,
Document Type: Proceeding Paper
Part of: Critical Issues in Water and Wastewater Treatment
The purpose of this paper is to present an overview of the mechanisms and application of a peat/wetland treatment system for heavy metal removal from wastewater. The mechanisms involved in the removal of heavy metals are complex and difficult to predict, however, peat has been proven to be an effective medium to remove metals. The successful design of a peat/wetland treatment system for acid mine drainage is presented to emphasize the low cost and minimal maintenance involved in this passive metal removal technique.
