The role of aluminium content in the control of the morphology of fly ash based hierarchical zeolite X
(University of the Western Cape, 2015)
Coal is the main source of electricity in South Africa, the combustion of which produces a large amount of waste (coal fly ash) annually. The large-scale generation of coal fly ash places major strain on landfills and the ...
Electrospinning of porous composite materials for hydrogen storage application
(University of the Western Cape, 2016)
Due to the rapid depletion of fossil fuel reserves and the production of environmentally harmful by-products such as carbon dioxide, there is an urgent need for alternate sustainable clean energy. One of the leading ...
Treatment of brines using commercial zeolites and zeolites synthesized from fly ash derivative
(University of the Western Cape, 2008)
The objectives of this project was to ameroliate two waste materials, namely Acid Mine Drainage and Fly Ash and recover the solid residues for conversion into an adsorbent to treat brine. The solid residues were then ...
Sorption properties of natural zeolites for the removal of ammonium and chromium ions in aqueous solution
(University of the Western Cape, 2011)
There are huge amount of natural clinoptilolite available in South Africa which can be utilised for wastewater treatment of ammonia and chromium if their characteristics are properly known. However, these deposits have not ...
Synthesis and characterisation of high silica zeolites with MOR and MFI framework type from South African coal fly ash.
(University of the Western Cape, 2019)
High-silica zeolites are porous, aluminosilicate materials known for high thermal stability; making these materials favourable for application in various industrial processes involving elevated temperatures. The synthesis ...
