Removal of Arsenic from aqueous solutions using Turbinaria vulgaris sp. as biosorbent

Abstract

Biosorption of heavy metals is an effective and cheapest technology for the treatment of industrial wastewaters. The removal capacity of Arsenic from aqueous solutions through biosorption using turbinaria vulgaris sp. was studied in batch experiments. Parameters like contact time, metal ion concentration, biosorbent dosage, pH were studied at initial concentration 20,40,60,80,100mg/l. The experimental results were analysed by Langmuir, Freundlich models. Biosorption kinetic data were fitted with the pseudo-second-order kinetic model. The rate constant, the initial biosorption rate, and the equilibrium biosorption capacity were determined.
