Constructed wetland modified by biochar/zeolite addition

Nov 01, 2019· In CW2, using zeolite and biochar substrate layers performed an important role to diminish ammonia by 99.9% elimination effectiveness. Bashir et al. (2017) reported 31% ammonia elimination from landfill leachate by biochar derived from palm oil mill. Jafarpour et al. (2010) could remove 70% to 90% ammonia from wastewater by Iranian natural zeolite.
