Using a strong base anion resin to remove sulphuric acid from ammonium sulphate solution through acid retardation” presented by Busisiwe Silwana from Cwenga Technologies at the 4th Young Professionals Conference
I am Busisiwe Silwana, an intern at Cwenga Technologies. I completed my research project as a pre-requisite for obtaining my BTech in chemical engineering at the University of Johannesburg with the much appreciated assistance of Jenny Hardwick and Ed Hardwick from Cwenga. This research involved investigating the use of strong base anion resins to remove sulphuric acid from ammonium sulphate by acid retardation. The removal of sulfuric acid from ammonium sulphate using strongly basic anion exchange resins by acid retardation has not been widely reported; this is therefore a novel process.
