%T Nitrogen and Phosphorus Removal from Livestock Wastewater by Zeolite Ion Exchange and Ionizing Radiation

%X The ionizing radiation of livestock wastewater for the
removal of nitrogen and phosphorus was studied in the presence of a
natural zeolite. The feasibility of a combined process of zeolite ion
exchange and electron beam irradiation of livestock wastewater was
also investigated. The removal efficiencies of NH4
+-N, T-N and T-P
were significantly enhanced by electron beam irradiation after zeolite
ion exchange as a pre-treatment. The presence of silica zeolite
accelerated the decomposition rate of livestock wastewater in the
electron beam irradiation process. These results indicate that the
combined process of zeolite ion exchange and electron beam
irradiation has the potential for the treatment of livestock wastewater
