A REVIEW ON TREATMENT OF ACID MINE DRAINAGE WITH WASTE MATERIALS: A NOVEL APPROACH
Saha, S. and A. Sinha.
Global NEST Journal 20(3):512-528(2018)

The present study reviewed different aspects of treating acid mine drainage (AMD) with active treatment and waste materials and factors associated with the treatment process. The results from the investigation showed that fly ash, metallurgical slag, and cement kiln dust raise the pH of acidic solution more, in comparison to zero-valent iron and organic waste, due to their richness in lime content. Metal removal from AMD varied, due to the composition of AMD and the characteristics of waste materials. https://journal.gnest.org/sites/default/files/Submissions/gnest_02610/gnest_02610_published.pdf
