Biosorption has distinct advantages such as high efficiency and cost-effectiveness for removal of metal ions from wastewater. However, most studies of bacterial biosorption have focused on the removal of a single metal ion from aqueous solutions, even though natural water and wastewater rarely contain only one kind of heavy metal. This study investigated… CONTINUE READING
