Abstract
Boron removal from aqueous solutions using alginate gel beads in fixed-bed systems was investigated. Based on batch tests, calcium alginate gel beads demonstrated a good capacity of adsorption [1]. Moreover, equilibrium and dynamic studies for the adsorption of boron on calcium alginate gel beads was rationalized using principal component analysis (PCA) and partial least squares [2]. In this study an experimental database produced comprising a total of 30 experimental columns was analyzed follow...
