Purification of Dye-stuff Contained Wastewater by a Hybrid Adsorption-Periphyton Reactor (HAPR): Performance and Mechanisms.

ABSTRACT: The aim of this study was to develop an environmental-benign bio-measure that could be used to purify dye-contaminated wastewater. Herein, a hybrid adsorption-periphyton reactor (HAPR), combining a bioadsorbent based adsorption unit and a periphyton-based photo-bioreactor (PPBR), was built and applied for the first time. Firstly, an efficient bioadsorbent, i.e, microwave-activated swede rape hull (MSRH), was produced, characterized and applied in an adsorption column, to pretreat methylene blue (MB) wastewater with high concentration (~100?mg?L-1 or higher). Thereafter, the effluent of adsorption column, with lower dye concentration (~0.5?mg?L-1), was collected and further purified by PPBR. Results showed that dye removal efficiency by HAPR was 99.95% (from 200?mg?L-1 to 0.1?mg?L-1 or lower). Decolorization mechanisms by PPBR, included adsorption process by extracellular polymeric substances (EPS) on the surface of periphyton and degradation process. The study showed that HAPR was a novel, environmental friendly, efficient and promising dye-purification method and deserved further attention in future investigation.
