Heavy metals removal in aqueous environments using bark as a biosorbent

  title={Heavy metals removal in aqueous environments using bark as a biosorbent},
  author={Ali Şen and Helena Pereira and M Angels Olivella and Isabel Villaescusa},
Tree bark is among the widely available and low-cost sorbents for metal adsorption in aqueous environments. A state-of-the-art review is compiled carrying out a comprehensive literature search on the biosorption of heavy metals in solution onto different bark species, including a characterization of bark structure and chemistry. The results indicate that biosorption has been gaining importance for bark valorization purposes. Promising heavy metal uptake values have already been attained using… CONTINUE READING
