ENVIRONMENTAL AND HEALTH IMPACTS OF MINING IN AFRICA

The effect of pH on the adsorption of heavy metals on the natural zeolite and the zeolite-fungi was studied in the pH range 2 to 7. The results are shown in Figures 2 and 3. The results showed an increase in adsorption capacity with the zeolite fungi (40–50 mg/g) compare to the natural zeolite (2–10 mg/g).
