Based on the results of experimental studies of sorption wastewater treatment, a regression-type mathematical model has been developed that adequately describes the effect of all parameters of the ongoing process on the sorption activity of zeolite: initial concentration, sorption time, process temperature, and medium pH. For the first time in research, a generalized criterion for the consistency of behavior and the width of the domain of definition of the model was used. The processes of involving large-tonnage wastes of chemical production to obtain adsorption materials effective for the extraction of heavy metal ions from industrial wastewater have been studied. Natural zeolites were used as the initial matrix, the main component of which is klinoptilolite. A sulfur polymer obtained from epichlorohydrin production wastes with the main component 1,2,3-trichloropropane is proposed as a modifier. Fixation of the modifier on the surface of the zeolite, as well as the effective adsorption of metal ions, have been proven by IR spectroscopy and energy dispersive analysis.
