My name is Victor Augusto and I’m 17 years oldTell us what the water concern in your country is!
The concern with water in Brazil is very low even with the amount of water we have, only the conscience of the people when it begins to decrease the quantity of the reservoirs ,but when it returns to normal it seems that everyone agrees to take care of the water.From where comes your interest in water?
Since I was little I always liked the environment and then with classes in school and research I was enjoying every time of the water and what it provides to all, from this we base our work in the treatment of such precious water.This is what I think is one of the solutions for a sustainable future:
So first I think it is very important to raise the awareness of all people that without water we will not exist anymore, there also tend to be a greater number of people who discard polluted effluents and desires in the seas and rivers in an incorrect way. From this it must take care of the water of the world all because it is much more precious than jewels and gold and must be cared for as such.
The environmental instability caused by increasing presence of metallic ions and dyes in the water has been increasing in the last decades, as the number of researches looking for methods of liquid effluents depollution. One of these methods is the adsorption. The group synthesized the magnetite (Fe3O4) as a form of low cost and high efficiency adsorber material, together with active carbon and polyurethane. It was aimed at the removal of dyes, cobalt ions (Co2+) and cadmium ions (Cd2+) from effluents. To prove its efficiency, an experimental methodology was used to simulate the aquatic environment where the synthesized materials would act. Additionally, it was tried to recover the material used in order to reduce the environmental impacts of the research.
