Abstract

Environmental problems have generated discussion and criticism due the increasing of industrial activity and therefore the contamination of natural waters. Many contaminants are detected in groundwater and surface water, among them are the colors, the target of this work. In this context, it is necessary to remove these stains prior to disposal of these effluents in aquatic environments. Many processes have been proposed for the removal of these dyes. For this purpose, has sought alternatives to the removal of coloring material from relatively inexpensive and simple methods. This project proposes to use a material of low cost and abundance in nature: the use of natural São Simão, Brazilian clays to synthesize zeolites. Brazil stands out in the extraction of clay, one of the kaolinite. The kaolinite in its natural form, not shown good cation exchange capacity, in this sense the modification thereof by means of heat treatments has generated good results. In this case, the ease to synthesize zeolite without raising the cost of the final product makes them even more important industrially. According to the classical definition, the term covers only crystalline aluminosilicate zeolites hydrated open structure, consisting of SiO4 tetrahedral and AlO4 linked together by oxygen atoms. The process of color removal used is adsorption. This process has been widely used, it has wide applicability in the treatment of sewage. Stands so in this case the use of zeolites obtained from natural clays, such as adsorbents for this process. Evaluating the advantages of the adsorption process in low-cost materials such as zeolites in relation to other processes and other adsorbents are also used for the treatment of industrial effluents.
