Regeneration of magnetic biochar derived from eucalyptus leaf residue for lead(II) removal
Regeneration of Pb-loaded magnetic biochar prepared with eucalypts leaf residue was studied by using EDTA-2Na as a regenerant. The desorption efficiency was found to be 84.1% in 120 min with iron leaching amount of 1.1 mg g(-1). Higher S-BET and pore volume were observed in regenerated magnetic biochars and no significant band shifts occurred in FTIR spectra during 6 regeneration cycles. The decrease of Pb(II) adsorption capacity (from 52.4 to 41.5 mg g(-1)) was only found in the first regeneration cycle. Magnetic separation performance of adsorbents was not significantly affected by multiple regeneration cycles. (C) 2015 Elsevier Ltd. All rights reserved.
