Abstract:

Treatment methods are needed to decrease concentrations of guanidinium ion Gu and nitroguanidine NQ from Sunflower Army Ammunition Plant wastewaters. Thus, feasibility studies were performed concerning the ion exchange removal of Gu and activated carbon absorption of NQ. The solutions from which these species were removed contained NH4 and Na ion, which were also expected in waste-water. Synthetic ion-exchange resins remove Gu however, resin capacities are expected to be considerably lower than those attained in conventional hardwater treatment. Procedures are presented to estimate resin capacity for solutions of other Gu, NH4, or Na concentrations.
