Removal of dissolved metals by zero-valent iron(ZVI): Kinetics, equilibriums, processes, and implications for stormwater runoff treatment

R. Rangsivek & M. R. Jekel
This study investigates the processes of copper and zinc ion removal from stormwater runoff by zero-valent iron (ZVI, Fe0). Kinetic and equilibrium tests were performed with laboratory prepared and in-situ stormwater runoff samples collected from roof, street and highway catchments. Based on the results, a substantial portion of Cu2+ is reduced and transformed to insoluble forms of Cu0 and Cu2O. Unlike wise, the adsorption and co-precipitation associated with freshly precipitated iron oxides play important roles...
