Attapulgite/carbon composites as a recyclable adsorbent for antibiotics removal

Attapulgite/carbon composites as a recyclable adsorbent for antibiotics removal We evaluated the adsorption performance of attapulgite/carbon (APT/C) composite as reusable adsorbents for antibiotics. APT/C composite was first synthesized by one-step calcination based on the spent bleaching earth after bleaching of vegetable oil, and followed by a thermal regeneration after adsorption of antibiotic at different temperatures. Antibiotics adsorption results revealed that APT/C composites prepared at 300 °C exhibited high adsorption capacity and fast equilibrium. Thermal regeneration proved to be an efficient methodology for recycling the spent antibiotic-loaded APT/C composites. After the ten-time continuous adsorption-calcination process, the removal ratios of the recycled adsorbents still retained around 67.3% and 62.9% for chlortetracycline and tetracycline, respectively. The conjugation of the adsorption and regeneration results suggested that combining the advantages of APT and carbon species provided a feasible strategy to fabricate a promising adsorbent with the desirable adsorption and regeneration properties for removal of antibiotics in the future. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Korean Journal of Chemical Engineering Springer Journals

Abstract

We evaluated the adsorption performance of attapulgite/carbon (APT/C) composite as reusable adsorbents for antibiotics. APT/C composite was first synthesized by one-step calcination based on the spent bleaching earth after bleaching of vegetable oil, and followed by a thermal regeneration after adsorption of antibiotic at different temperatures. Antibiotics adsorption results revealed that APT/C composites prepared at 300 °C exhibited high adsorption capacity and fast equilibrium. Thermal regeneration proved to be an efficient methodology for recycling the spent antibiotic-loaded APT/C composites. After the ten-time continuous adsorption-calcination process, the removal ratios of the recycled adsorbents still retained around 67.3% and 62.9% for chlortetracycline and tetracycline, respectively. The conjugation of the adsorption and regeneration results suggested that combining the advantages of APT and carbon species provided a feasible strategy to fabricate a promising adsorbent with the desirable adsorption and regeneration properties for removal of antibiotics in the future.
