... Arsenic in drinking water is a factor that has recently been shown to be a possible cause for an elevated bladder cancer risk in northern New England.... 40% of the population in this region uses private wells as the primary drinking water source. Point-of-entry (POE) and point-of-use (POU) arsenic removal systems can be an attractive and effective way for a well owner to treat the water to reduce the arsenic level to below the US EPA maximu ...

... Arsenic poisoning in drinking water is a health issue in many Asian countries including Bangladesh, India, China and Vietnam. In areas where the drinking... supply contains unsafe levels of arsenic, technologies to remove arsenic are of prime importance. Many technologies have been developed for the removal of arsenic. Among those reverse osmosis (RO) and nanofiltration (NF) are very promising techniques because they have the advantage of removin ...

Iron oxide adsorbers for arsenic removal: A low cost treatment for rural areas and mobile applications
Nanoscale iron oxide particles were synthesized and deposited on porous alumina tubes to develop tubular ceramic adsorbers for the removal of arsenic, which is an extremely toxic contaminant even in very low concentrations. In addition, its natural presence affects rural and low-incom ...

Arsenic removal by coagulation and filtration: comparison of groundwaters from the United States and Bangladesh
... Arsenic contamination of drinking water is a concern in many parts of the world. In the United States, the Environmental Protection Agency recently... level is 50 ppb. Consequently, there is a great need for new cost-effective methods to remove arsenic from drinking water. Here arsenic removal by coagulation and filtration was investigated using groundwater from a city in southern Colorado in the United States and from Sonargaon i ...

Groundwater in the area of eastern Croatia contains high concentrations of iron, manganese, ammonia, organic substances and arsenic. The appearance of inorganic arsenic in groundwater is mainly caused by arsenic from natural geological sources. Since the groundwater is the main... arsenic concentration in drinking water and hair arsenic concentration was determined. In order to improve drinking water quality e.g. arsenic removal from contaminated drinking water, different modified adsorbents were used and compared (zeolite–clinoptilolite, manganese greensand and cationi ...

... with SWHR and BW-30 (FILMTEC) membranes. The effect of pH and concentration of the feed water and operating pressure on the rejection of both arsenic species was examined. The experimental results indicated that rejection for both As(V) and As(III) mostly depended on the membrane type, pH of the... The removal of arsenate [As(V)] and arsenite [As(III)] from water was investigated by using reverse osmosis (RO) technique with SWHR and BW-30 (FILMTEC ...
