AbstractHighly porous, nanostructured zirconium oxide spheres were fabricated from ZrO2 nanoparticles with the assistance of agar powder to form spheres with size at millimeter level followed with a heat treatment at 450 degrees C to remove agar network, which provided a simple, low-cost, and safe process for the synthesis of ZrO2 spheres. These ZrO2 spheres had a dual-pore structure, in which interconnected macropores were beneficial for liquid transport and the mesopores could largely increase their surface area (about 98 m(2)/g) for effective contact with arsenic species in water. These ZrO2 spheres demonstrated an even better arsenic removal performance on both As(III) and As(V) than ZrO2 nanoparticles, and could be readily applied to commonly used fixed-bed adsorption reactors in the industry. A short bed adsorbent test was conducted to validate the calculated external mass transport coefficient and the pore diffusion coefficient. The performance of full-scale fixed bed systems with these ZrO2 spheres as the adsorber was estimated by the validated pore surface diffusion modeling. With the empty bed contact time (EBCT) at 10 mm and the initial arsenic concentration at 30 ppb, the number of bed volumes that could be treated by these dry ZrO2 spheres reached similar to 255,000 BVs and similar to 271,000 BVs for As(III) and As(V), respectively, until the maximum contaminant level of 10 ppb was reached. These ZrO2 spheres are non-toxic, highly stable, and resistant to acid and alkali, have a high arsenic adsorption capacity, and could be easily adapted for various arsenic removal apparatus. Thus, these ZrO2 spheres may have a promising potential for their application in water treatment practice. (C) 2013 Elsevier Ltd. All rights reserved.
