Adsorption kinetics and equilibrium isotherms of cadmium removal from wastewater using Chlamydomonas reinhardtii immobilized in sodium alginate

Sodium alginate-immobilized Chlamydomonas reinhardtii (C. reinhardtii) can make the cells survive in harsh environments and its ability to remove cadmium from wastewater was investigated through a comparative study. Results showed that the entrapped beads displayed a higher capacity and efficiency for cadmium (Cd) removal, which was significantly affected… CONTINUE READING
