Mechanisms of lead and zinc removal from lead mine drainage in constructed wetland
Keywords and Phrases
"Constructed wetlands treating different mine drainage were designed based on one-for-all criteria instead of being customized and engineered carefully based on the characteristics of the mine drainage and wetland substrates due to lack of detailed knowledge about metal removal mechanisms. This research has studied individually the chemistry of the major removal mechanisms and generated the parameters describing the reactions involved in metal removal in constructed wetlands, which can be used to combine different removal mechanisms to meet the treatment requirement for different mine drainage. The bioavailability and potential hazard of metals retained in constructed wetlands can also be determined based on the fate of metals in constructed wetlands."--Introduction, page 5.
