Biosorption of a reactive textile dye from aqueous solutions utilizing an agro-waste
Abstract In the present study a low-cost waste biomass derived from canned food plant, was tested for its ability to remove reactive textile dye from aqueous solutions. The batch biosorption
Enhanced biosorption of nickel(II) ions by silica-gel-immobilized waste biomass: biosorption characteristics in batch and dynamic flow mode.
The results showed that silica-immobilized waste biomass was a low-cost promising sorbent for sequester of nickel(II) ions from synthetic and real wastewater.
Nickel removal characteristics of an immobilized macro fungus: equilibrium, kinetic and mechanism analysis of the biosorption
BACKGROUND: An immobilized new biosorbent was prepared from macro fungi Lactarius salmonicolor for the effective removal of nickel ions from aqueous media. Operating conditions were optimized as
Assessment of cationic dye biosorption characteristics of untreated and non-conventional biomass: Pyracantha coccinea berries.
Assessment of the dye methylene blue biosorption properties of Pyracantha coccinea berries under different experimental conditions indicated that the suggested inexpensive and readily available biomaterial has a good potential for the biosorptive removal of basic dye.
Biosorption potential of the waste biomaterial obtained from Cucumis melo for the removal of Pb2+ ions from aqueous media: Equilibrium, kinetic, thermodynamic and mechanism analysis
Abstract The potential use of a waste biosorbent material obtained from Cucumis melo ( C. melo ) for the removal of Pb 2+ ions from aqueous solutions was investigated by considering equilibrium and
An attractive agro-industrial by-product in environmental cleanup: dye biosorption potential of untreated olive pomace.
High biosorption yield of olive waste for the removal of RR198 dye from real wastewater makes it possible that the olive pomace could be applied widely in wastewater treatment as biosorbent taking into account that no pretreatment on the solid residue is carried out.
Investigation of the biosorption characteristics of lead(II) ions onto Symphoricarpus albus: Batch and dynamic flow studies.
S. albus which is cheap, highly selective and easily regenerable seems to be a promising substrate to entrap lead(II) ions in aqueous solutions.
Removal of chromium (VI) ions from aqueous solutions by using Turkish montmorillonite clay: effect of activation and modification
Abstract This study provides information on the Cr(VI) adsorption potential of Turkish (Mihaliccik region) montmorillonite clay as an abundant, cost-effective and untried material. Batch adsorption
Removal of copper(II) ions from synthetic solution and real wastewater by the combined action of dried Trametes versicolor cells and montmorillonite
Abstract A combination of white rot fungi Trametes versicolo r and montmorillonite type clay was studied for its ability to remove copper(II) ions from copper contaminated solutions. The effects of
Biosorption of Reactive Blue 49 dye under batch and continuous mode using a mixed biosorbent of macro-fungus Agaricus bisporus and Thuja orientalis cones
Abstract A biosorbent was developed by mixing the macro-fungus Agaricus bisporus and Thuja orientalis cones and successfully used for the biosorption of Reactive Blue 49 (RB49) dye. The biosorbent
