Abstract

In this study, a series of polyaluminium chloride/papermaking sludge-based organic polymer (PAC-PSBF) composites with different PAC basicity and PAC/PSBF mass ratios were prepared from papermaking sludge. The basic properties of the aforementioned composites were characterized, and their flocculation efficiencies were studied in the disperse yellow (DY) and reactive blue (RB) dye removals. The results of the flocculation experiments demonstrated that PAC-PSBF composites performed better than PAC regardless of the PAC basicity or PAC/PSBF mass ratios. The composites with low PAC basicity were effective in DY and RB dye removals. PAC-PSBF composites with the same PAC basicity but higher PAC/PSBF mass ratios exerted more satisfactory color removals and floc properties in both DY and RB dye removals. PAC-PSBF composites were more pH-independent than PAC, and the excellent flocculation efficiencies of the composites was achieved at pH 4.0 to 8.0 in DY/RB dye removals. In brief, desirable flocculation efficiencies of the PAC-PSBF composites were obtained when PAC and PSBF were appropriately combined together.
