Chromium occurs in nature mainly in its trivalent or hexavalent form. Hexavalent chromium Cr(VI) is particularly toxic to humans, animals, and plants. The extensive pollution of groundwaters with Cr(VI) necessitates the complete understanding of natural chromium oxidation and reduction mechanisms, both for assessing the risk of hexavalent chromium formation and for the development of techniques for the reduction and removal of Cr(VI) from contaminated water bodies. In this work, the possibility of hexavalent chromium reduction by discarded or low-cost materials, which contain reducing compounds, is investigated regarding the creation of a compact, pump-and-treat filter for Cr(VI) removal from groundwater.
Keywords: chromates reduction; divalent iron; iron oxides inhibition; pump-and-treat chromates reduction; divalent iron; iron oxides inhibition; pump-and-treat
