Use of zeolite to reduce the radioactivity of cesium -137 in the liquid waste
Prepared zeolite type A was used for the removal of cesium ions from aqueous solution. The experimental data were analyzed by Langmuir, Freundlich isotherms. Various parameters, such as contact time, zeolite weight, pH, and initial concentration, were studied The results indicated that the highestt removal efficiency was 95.53% at (2h time, 0.04 g weight, and pH=6.8). The results also showed that the Freundlic model fits well with the experimental results and is better than the Langmuir model.
