Abstract

This thesis investigates the effectiveness of a passive treatment technology for Fe removal from low pH metal mine water. In addition, the use of electrocoagulation (EC) in removing Zn from circumneutral mine water and acid mine drainage (AMD) was studied. Using an advanced oxidation process (AOP) followed by EC converted Fe(II) from coal mine drainage to a stable magnetic form of Fe. Research also studied the use of Cu electrodes in removing high concentrations of metals and sulphate from AMD.
