    Abstract: In the present study, the efficacy of chromium removal from water media was studied. For this purpose, a metal oxide based material, derived from the enrichment process of quartz coastal sand was used as possible adsorbent of chromium (III) ions. Following additional modification of the adsorbent, the effect of operational parameters including pH, ... Show More

    Abstract: Renewable and clean energy sources are the only way for humanity to live harmoniously on planet Earth. How to achieve this goal? Solar and wind energy are produced only when the sun and wind are present. The percentage of hydropower is quite small. Therefore, compensating sources of energy are needed at night and in winter. Today, these are coal an... Show More
