New Findings from Presidency University in the Area of Chemical Engineering Described [Fixed-bed column performance of Mn-incorporated iron(III) oxide nanoparticle agglomerates on As(III) removal from the spiked groundwater in lab bench scale]

By a News Reporter-Staff News Editor at Journal of Engineering -- Investigators publish new report on Chemical Engineering. According to news originating from Kolkata, India, by VerticalNews correspondents, research stated, "Assessment of the breakthrough performance of agglomerated Mn-incorporated Fe(III) oxide nanoparticle (MNFO) packed fixed-bed column on As(III) removal was conducted from the spiked groundwater. Variable parameters examined were column bed depth, effluent discharge rate and input As(III) concentration."

Our news journalists obtained a quote from the research from Presidency University, "Modeling of the breakthrough point (As concentration

According to the news editors, the research concluded: "Thus, the MNFO fixed bed filtering column is capable to reduce not only high arsenic level but also other inorganic contaminants such as iron and phosphate from the groundwater."
