Specific objectives

The main objective of this project is the design and construction of a continuous and automated industrial line for the recycling of bentonites, with a production capacity of 50kg/day.
Other specific objectives of the present project are the following:

  • Obtainment of an efficient adsorbent of heavy metals present in industrial waste water from waste bentonites, using the industrial line to be developed.
  • Incorporation of the obtained adsorbent in different systems to be applied to the treatment of water produced in industrial processes.
  • Design and construction of a simple industrial line containing one of the developed systems, and easy to be implemented in real industrial plants.
  • Testing of the developed solutions in real industrial scenarios.
