[OLD] HFO sorbing surfaces

Recommended Posts

From: Katie Aguilar

Subject: HFO Sorbing Surfaces

I am modeling leachate through a clay layer. The contaminants of concern are metals, there are no organics in this problem. I am trying to model the natural attenuation in clay as the leachate runs through a set volume of clay (8 cubic feet) with a CEC = 0.6 eq/g. The model works well when I use

the ion exchange script for the model. However, when I add in the FeOH script, it tells me that the reactants are charge imbalanced by -539.8, and it does not continue the model. I am running GWB (React) Release 4.0.2 on Windows 2000, and have attached the script. I am also using the default thermo dataset.
