Abstract

An investigation was conducted on the use of selected sorbents for removing industrial leachate contaminants from three industrial sludges (petroleum, calcium fluoride and metal finishing). This investigation consisted of two phases; namely, a laboratory study and outdoor pilot study. The laboratory study results indicated that rather than a single sorbent, a combination of acidic and basic sorbents is required in a layered system for removal of all the measurable contaminants from the leachates.
