Abstract: The adsorption of residual organic pollutants from flocculated printing ink wastewater onto several synthetic zeolites was investigated as a finishing method for additional reduction of TOC. The nonselective removal of total organic content was studied. The amount of adsorbed organics was largest for ZSM-5 and NH4-Beta while the other zeolites studied showed lower efficiency, suggesting that adsorption is independent of pore structure. The adsorption rates of organic pollutants were fast. Although the TOC remo…
