AbstractThis article investigates the removal of ammonium from aqueous solutions using zeolite synthesized from fly ash by a fusion method, which combines alkaline fusion followed by hydrothermal treatment. The cation exchange capacity increases from 0.03 to 2.79 meq/g during the synthesis process. The effects of contact time, pH, initial ammonium concentration, adsorbent dosage, and the presence of other cations and anions are examined by batch experiments. The findings show that these parameters have significant effects on the ammonium removal using the synthesized zeolite. The effect of cations follows the order K+>Ca2+>Na+>Mg2+, while the effect of anions follows the order CO32->Cl->SO42-. The Lagergren first-order. Ho' pseudo-second-order, and intraparticle diffusion kinetic models are employed to describe the kinetic data, and Ho' pseudo-second-order model provides excellent fitting. The equilibrium isotherm data are fitted to the Langmuir, Freundlich, Koble-Corrigan, Tempkin and Dubinin-Radushkevich models; the Koble-Corrigan model gives the best fit. The thermodynamic study reveals that ammonium uptake by the synthesized zeolite is an exothermic reaction. The maximum ammonium uptake capacity obtained is 24.3 mg/g. The regenerated zeolite has almost the same ammonium uptake capacity as the original zeolite. These results indicate that the synthesized zeolite is a promising material for removing ammonium from wastewater. (C) 2010 Elsevier B.V. All rights reserved.
