Traditional methods used for the removal of heavy metals from the environment are in general expensive and potentially risky due to the possibility of hazardous byproducts generation. Recently, attention has been directed to development of alternative methodologies such as use of organic materials as biosorbents. These methods represent environmental friendly and cost-effective possibilities for the elimination of heavy metal contaminants from aqueous environment. Previous batch studies showed… CONTINUE READING
