Water Environment Research open access article discusses ammonia removal methods

In the September 2017 special issue of Water Environment Research (WER) on adsorption, an evaluation of zeolite-based systems for ammonia removal is the topic of the open access article.

“Ammonia may negatively impact aquatic, terrestrial, and atmospheric domains, but in contrast is a valuable asset in terms of fertiliser needs,” guest editor of the special issue, Kari Brisolara, said. “This paper presents further research into not only the adsorption capabilities with regard to ammonia removal, but also its potential for recovery.” 

According to Brisolara, the zeolite utilised in the study “demonstrated promising performance with respect to four principal parameters cost–effectiveness, ammonia removal efficiency, performance on regeneration, and ammonia release percentage.”

Selected WERarticles – such as this one – are available free to the public on a monthly basis through an open-access program. In addition, authors can pay a fee to make their accepted articles open access.

Published by the Water Environment Federation since 1928, WER is a popular professional journal that features peer-reviewed research papers and research notes, as well as state-of-the-art and critical reviews on original, fundamental, and applied research in all scientific and technical areas related to water quality, pollution control, and management.
