Biosorption of Heavy Metals

Heavy Metal Biosorptionthrough Biomass

Pollutants such as heavy metals, volatile organic compounds and dissolved solids are found in wastewaters. Heavy metal remediation of aqueous streams is of special concern due to recalcitrant and persistency of heavy metals in environment (Sud et al. 2008). They are removed on adsorbents such as activated carbon, clay and sediments in riverbeds and in suspension. Over the years, the role of adsorption in water waste-water treatment has been critically investigated (Oke et al. 2008). Adsorption...
