Only within the past decade has the potential of metal biosorption by biomass materials been well established. For economic reasons, of particular interest are abundant biomass types generated as a waste byproduct of large‐scale industrial fermentations or certain metal‐binding algae found in large quantities in the sea. These biomass types serve as a basis for newly developed metal biosorption processes foreseen particularly as a very competitive means for the detoxification of metal‐bearing…

TLDR
Experimental methodologies used in the study of biosorption and selected recent research results demonstrate the route to novel biosorbent materials some of which can even be repeatedly regenerated for re-use.
Recent trends in the biosorption of heavy metals: A review
Considerable attention has been focused in recent years upon the field of biosorption for the removal of metal ions from aqueous effluents. Compared to other technologies, the advantages of
BIOSORPTION OF HEAVY METALS BY FUNGAL BIOMASS AND MODELING OF FUNGAL BIOSORPTION: A REVIEW
The wastewaters discharged from chemical industries which may contain heavy metal ions have toxic effect on all the living organisms. Because of this, disposal of them to the environment is a major
Biosorption of Heavy Metals in the Environment-A Review Paper
Industrial effluents containing heavy metals may consider a major source of contamination causes serious environmental problems. Decontamination of heavy metals from wastewater has been a challenged
Biosorption Processes for Heavy Metal Removal
TLDR
The chapter deals with quantitative modeling of the key phenomena, and presents the biosorption equilibrium models, which are the basis for modeling of dynamic processes, e.g., in columns, that are of greater industrial relevance and are described in detail.
Biosorption by Marine Algae
The term biosorption describes the passive (i.e. not metabolically mediated) binding of heavy metals by dead or living biomass. The term bioaccumulation, on the other hand, refers to active processes

Biosorption of cadmium by biomass of marine algae
TLDR
Biomass of nonliving, dried brown marine algae Sargassum natans, Fucus vesiculosus, and Ascophyllum nodosum demonstrated high equilibrium uptake of cadmium from aqueous solutions and there was no damage to the biosorbent which retained its macroscopic appearance and performance in repeated metal uptake/elution cycles.
Filamentous fungi as metal biosorbents: A review
Common filamentous fungi (e.g. Penicillium spp, Rhizopus spp) serve as sources of highly effective heavy metal biosorbents. Derivatives of fungal biomass range from purified cell wall fractions to

Screening tests of different marine algae biomas types revealed a high passive biosorptive uptake of lead up to 270 mg Pb/g of biomass in some brown marine algae. Members of the order Fucales
Cadmium removal in a biosorption column
TLDR
New biosorbent material derived from a ubiquitous brown marine alga Ascophyllum nodosum has been examined in packed‐bed flow‐through sorption columns, resulting in quantitative determination of the characteristic process parameters which can be used for performance comparison and process design.

TLDR
Using pre-grown biomass immobilized in a flow-through filter the metal-accumulative bioprocess can be described accurately applying traditional Michaelis-Menten kinetics, and the effect of co-pollutants can be quantified in order to run the bioreactor in the most efficient way.
