Abstract

HIGUERA COBOS, OSCAR FABIÁN; ARROYAVE LONDONO, JUAN FELIPE  and  FLOREZ GARCIA, LUIS CARLOS. DESIGN OF A BIOFILTER TO REDUCE THE CONTAMINATION CONTENT BY CHROMIUM GENERATED IN THE INDUSTRIES OF THE LEATHER TANNING. Dyna rev.fac.nac.minas [online]. 2009, vol.76, n.160, pp.107-119. ISSN 0012-7353.

The industrial sector of the tanneries generates unloadings with high volumes of chromium concentrates. The chromium is used in this industry like tanning agent. The tanning of skins presents some difficulties with the use of chromium salts, must to the great amount of tanning agent that does not fix to the skin and finally unloading to the environment, in waste waters causing negative effects in the environment and to the human health. The object of this work is to provide an alternative for the Chromium removal of waste water from tannery using coffea leaf variety castle, coffea Arabica

Keywords : Chromium; coffea arabica; Biosorption; biofilter.
