IMPROVEMENT OF ADSORPTION PROCESSES OF WASTEWATER TREATMENT FROM NICKEL IONS

The sorption properties of natural and complex sorbents for neutralization of Ni2+ ions from the water environment were studied. The isotherm of the adsorption of Ni2+ ions on complex sorbents (activated bentonite to shungite is 1:1) according to the Langmuir and Freundlich’s models was drawn; the type of adsorption isotherms according to the S. Brunauer's classification was established. The values of the maximum sorption capacity of  Гmax sorbents relative to Ni2+ ions were calculated.
