The present study deals with the characterization of low-cost rice husk ash (RHA) for its various physico-chemical properties and adsorption characteristics of metal ions. The average particle size of RHA was 150.47mum. Proximate analysis showed the presence of high amount of ash in RHA. Bulk density and the heating value of RHA were 104.9kg/m(3) and 9.68MJ… CONTINUE READING
