The aim of the project is to produce and optimize a new, efficient and economical adsorbent for metals and metalloids using biochar modified by double layered hydroxides. During the first year of the project, the adsorption efficiency of new material will be verified in a laboratory for inorganic contaminants in mine waters. The field application of the prepared adsorbent will be realized using the technology of pressure sorption columns in the second year. The evaluation of the field application efficiency and the establishment of conditions for the effective and comprehensive treatment of mine water as a local point source of environmental contamination will be the main outcome of the project.
