Abstract

In this research, chitin and chitosan were used to remove the water pollutants and wastewater through adsorption process, due to their distinctive biological and physical-chemical characteristics, and their efficiency was investigated to remove ethylene glycol cationic pollutant from aqueous environments of wastewaters generated from airport. Using the ethylene glycol leads to the formation of wastes containing EG mixed with mineral salts. There are several methods for treating these wastes, in the research; we intend to investigate the efficiency of the adsorption phenomenon to remove ethylene glycol from industrial wastes. Non-continuous absorption experiments were conducted to examine the effect of the factors affecting the removal process, including the effect of contact time of absorbent with pollutant, PH, initial concentration of the pollutant and the amount of consumed absorbent. The results indicate that chitosan is suitable for absorbing ethylene glycol from industrial wastewaters, and by increasing absorbent weight, the absorption rate also increases.
