Abstract
Mining wastewaters, containing heavy metals such as copper (Cu) and zinc (Zn), have a huge impact on the environment due to they are not biodegradable and tend to bioaccumulate in plants or living organisms. Therefore, in this work the performance of ion-exchange and solvent-impregnated resins were compared for the separation and recovery of valuable metals (Cu, Zn) from acidic mine waters (AMW). Lewatit 207 as an ion-exchange resin, and an impregnated resin containing Di-2-ethylhexylphosphate, ...
