Current Research Activities
Pollution is a serious problem for human health and the environment. Therefore, studies have tended to address this problem by using some materials available in the environment, such as clay minerals and natural zeolite. Due to the unavailability of the natural zeolite in the Egyptian lands and its high price. The aim of my study was to synthesize a type of synthetic zeolite from Egyptian kaolin, Wadi Hagul - Suez, as it is available in abundance and inexpensively. Where the synthetic zeolite - Y was synthesized successfully and was used in the remediation of wastewater and soil contaminated with some heavy metals.
