Summary of "Review of zero-valent aluminium based water and wastewater treatment methods."

Zero-valent metals (ZVM) are widely used to remove heavy metals, contaminants, toxicity, etc. from water and wastewater. Zero-valent aluminium (ZVAl) has large surface area and high surface reactivity. It has enormous flexibility for the in-situ application. ZVAl can be applied as either a single or a bimetallic system as well as advanced oxidation processes (AOPs). It is observed that ZVAl is capable of generating hydroxyl and sulfate radicals in water medium, which remove non-biodegradable pollutants from aqueous solution. ZVAl-based processes can remove non-biodegradable organic contaminants from water medium within a short duration. ZVAl is also used as a reducing agent. It is efficient to reduce toxic hexavalent chromium to less toxic trivalent chromium. ZVAl, in various combinations in bimetallic system (Fe/Al, Pd/Al, Cu/Al), is able to remove various contaminants from aqueous medium. Overall, it can be concluded that ZVAl-based methods for water and wastewater treatment are promising environmental technologies.

Published materials which provide an examination of recent or current literature. Review articles can cover a wide range of subject matter at various levels of completeness and comprehensiveness based on analyses of literature that may include research findings. The review may reflect the state of the art. It also includes reviews as a literary form.

Garbage, refuse, or sludge, or other discarded materials from a wastewater treatment plant, water supply treatment plant, and air pollution control facility that include solid, semi-solid, or contained material. It does not include materials dissolved in domestic sewage, irrigation return flows, or industrial discharges.

Any of several processes in which undesirable impurities in water are removed or neutralized; for example, chlorination, filtration, primary treatment, ion exchange, and distillation. It includes treatment of waste water to provide potable and hygiene water in a controlled or closed environment as well as provision of public drinking water supplies.
