[29] filled glass columns (38 cm long and 7 cm i.d.) with adequate quantities of vermicompost and achieved the complete removal of [Cd.sup.2+], [Cu.sup.2+], chromium (as [Cr.sub.2][O.sub.7.sup.2-]), [Ni.sup.2+], and [Zn.sup.2+] from galvanoplastic effluents and/or synthetic aqueous solutions.
[30] employed vermicompost in a column system for treating galvanoplastic effluents, and it was observed that copper, nickel, and zinc ions were retained with efficiencies close to 100% at natural effluent pH: 2.0, 7.4, and 6.9 for [Cu.sup.2+], [Ni.sup.2+], and [Zn.sup.2+], respectively.
The high reliefs of the pediments, doors and sculptures were cast of bronze or copper by the galvanoplastic technique and were of huge weight.
