Abstract: 

Ecotoxicity of rhodium (Rh) from the model of mining waste water side stream was examined in this paper. Rh was extracted from the model of the mining waste water using an emulsion liquid membrane (ELM). The extractions were done at pH of 1.87 and pH 2.92 and 41.6 % and 46.2 % of Rh was extracted respectively. The side streams of pH of 1.87 and pH 2.92 after the extractions were examined for ecotoxicity using Daphnia pulex in the acute toxicity testing. All test organisms died after 48 hours of exposure to the side stream effluent with the original pH=1.87, while 10-60 % survival rates were observed at the mining spent effluent with original pH of 2.92 if the strength of the effluent ranged from 12.5 to 62.5 %. Results for ethylenediaminetetraacetic acid tetrasodium salt dehydrate (EDTA) showed that an increase in concentration of EDTA in the test concentrations lead to the death of D. pulex. It was concluded that the very dilute water side streams are toxic hence the discharge of the spent Rh side-stream should thus be discouraged and prevented at all costs.
