Abstract The present study investigates the use of different wastes such as blue Pine wood shavings, walnut shell and chick pea testa in arsenic removal from aqueous solutions. Various conditions that affect the adsorption such as pH, biosorbent dose, contact time, temperature and concentration of adsorbate were investigated. Blue Pine wood shavings showed a tremendous potential as a remediation material for the removal of arsenic from water samples (surface and ground water). Walnut shell… CONTINUE READING
