Sediments can act as pollutant sink as well as source of secondary contamination in aquatic ecosystems. The pollution characteristics of eight heavy metals in the sediments of Ikwu River, Umuahia were investigated using eight assessment indices. The study was carried out between January and June 2022 in three stations. Results showed that cadmium exceeded permissible limit, copper exceeded limit only in February 2022 while others were within limits.
The results of the electrochemical separation of sulfate and zinc chloride regeneration solutions; the pH influence on the electrolysis process and the extracting efficiency of metallic zinc are presented in the work. It has been established that electrolysis should be carried out in a two-cell electrolyzer to remove metals effectively.
This work is an attempt to analyze the theoretical and practical aspects of landfill leachate treatment and analyze the pros and cons of the most widespread methods leachate treatment and suggest the method of complex purification of high-concentration sewage waters from solid domestic wastes (SDW) for example of Hrybovychi municipal solid domestic waste.
