Abstract Mercury is recognized as one of the most hazardous heavy metals. A variety of water treatment technologies exist that propose effective mercury removal. However, they may not be practical in many developing countries, largely due to their high implementation costs. We propose a cost-effective mercury removal approach based on a synthesized zeolite Linde Type A (LTA) from coal fly ash (CFA-ZA). The effectiveness of the proposed approach was investigated through a simulated Hg(II) solutio...

Abstract Successful conversion of coal fly ash (CFA) to synthetic NaP zeolite with zero liquid discharge is reported in this article. The process eliminates the need for large amounts of water and the need for a huge wastewater treatment unit. The need for water, as a make-up stream, is only to compensate water losses during sampling and drying. Savings associated with minimizing make-up water and eliminating wastewater treatment unit can be substantial. Water and sodium hydroxide consumption is...

Abstract This paper investigates the effects of ultrasound (UTS) energy at different temperatures on the zeolitization of aluminosilicate constituents of coal fly ash. UTS energy irradiated directly into the reaction mixture utilizing a probe immersed into the reaction mixture, unlike previously reported works that have used UTS baths. Controlled synthesis was also conducted at constant stirring and at the same temperatures using conventional heating. The precursor reaction solution was obtained...

This paper investigates the effects of single mode microwave irradiation on the synthesis of zeolite Na-A from sodium aluminate and sodium silicate gel at atmospheric pressure. Microwave irradiation has been shown to accelerate the zeolitization process from several hours to several minutes. The microwave irradiation employed was produced in a single mode lab scale microwave, which enabled control of irradiated power and temperature of the reaction mixture, while the pressure was controlled by a...

Abstract The ever increasing consumption of coal around the world has given rise to the by-product coal fly ash that requires an urgent attention and is gaining much needed research attention. This paper introduces pioneering work on zeolitization of coal fly ash utilizing conventional heating methods and reviews the progress made in the conversion of coal fly ash to zeolite and its applications while strongly focusing on the utilization of microwave and ultrasound energies in achieving this goa...

This paper investigates the effects of microwave irradiation on the synthesis of zeolite Na-A from coal fly ash at atmospheric pressure. Microwave irradiation has shown to accelerate zeolitization from several hours to several minutes. A single-mode laboratory-scale microwave was employed, which enabled control of irradiated power and temperature of the reaction mixture, while the pressure was controlled by affixing a condenser on the 40 mL Teflon reactor vessel with a working volume 20 mL. Desi...

The reuse of industrial wastes from a coal-fired power plant and a plasma electrolytic oxidation process was attempted to realize a zero discharge. The batch composition was adjusted by adding sodium hydroxide and sodium aluminate. A single-mode microwave oven equipped with reflux condenser was used for crystallization under atmospheric pressure. The synthesized samples were characterized by X-ray diffraction, scanning electron microscopy, BET, thermogravimetric analysis, and cation-exchange cap...
