Abstract

The aim of this work was to study the adsorption characters of resin, microbial reduction of perchlorate and combined process of perchlorate removal in aqueous solution. Study demonstrated the adsorption equilibrium was achieved in 120min, which based on ion exchange reaction. Dissolved perchlorate (100mg/L) can be completely removed by acclimated anaerobic sludge in 15h, and the concentrated perchlorate (∼200mg/g) on the surface of resin would be effectively microbial reduced after 3days. Neutral environment (pH=7.4), higher biomass and additional electron donor can apparently improve the biological reduction efficiency of concentrated perchlorate. Addition of many co-anions showed the competition adsorption towards perchlorate, especially in the presence of NO3(-). This study provides an effective method for perchlorate reduction by the adsorption-microbial process.
