Removal of lead and zinc from mining effluents by applying air micro-nanobubbles

Celeny Vicente, Jhonny Valverde Flores


The main objective of the research is to remove the concentration of lead and zinc present in the mining effluents in Peru by applying air micronanobubbles. For this study a sample of 54 liters of mining effluents was taken, which was divided into three groups of 18 liters each with three repetitions, in a period of 10, 15 and 20 minutes each. In the results it was possible to observe the removal of lead (from 51.3 mg / L to 1.29 mg / L) and zinc (from 17.601 mg / L to 0.26 mg / L) applying micronanobubbles in 15 minutes.
