Abstract

A series of analyses have been conducted to the characteristics of steel slag. Column sorption experiments were also conducted to investigate the attenuation of nutrients and DOC in wastewater using steel slag. After 64 days, DOC, PO4-P, TP, NH3-N, NOx-N, DON and TN were reduced in the column effluent by 51%, 99%, 87%, -15%, 32%, 29% and 23% respectively. The absorptive capacity of steel slag for DOC, PO4-P, TP, NH3-N, NOx-N, DON and TN after 64 days was 6317 mg/kg, 135 mg/kg, 126 mg/kg, -14 mg/kg, 27 mg/kg, 154 mg/kg and 167 mg/kg. Steel slag exhibits good adsorption of DOC and a range of nutrients.
