Many serious environmental problems were arised from the presence of heavy metals in the industrial waste water attributed to their non-biodegradable properties and toxicity [1]. Exposed to toxic heavy metals (Pb, Cu, Hg), even at low concentration lead to a wide range of spectrum health problems, such as convulsions, capillary, hepatic and renal damage. Precipitation, membrane processes, electrolytic recovery, liquid-liquid extraction, ion exchange and adsorption are techniques employed to the… 


Removal of Lead and Copper Ions from Polluted Aqueous Solutions using Nano-Sawdust Particles
Heavy metals pollution was considered as one of the most serious environmental problems. The removal of heavy metals ions (Pb2+ and Cu2+) from dilute aqueous solutions was investigated by using
Purification and reuse of heavy metals containing wastewaters from electroplating plants
Abstract Purification of copper- and chrome-containing rinse wastewaters from electroplating plants (concentration of heavy metals — 20–100 mg/l) has been studied. The wastewaters have been treated
Selective removal of the heavy metal ions from waters and industrial wastewaters by ion-exchange method.
By ion exchange undesirable ions are replaced by others which don't contribute to contamination of the environment by means various modern types of ion exchangers.
Selective adsorption of chromium(VI) in industrial wastewater using low-cost abundantly available adsorbents
Abstract The removal of poisonous Cr(VI) from industrial wastewater by different low-cost abundant adsorbents was investigated. Wool, olive cake, sawdust, pine needles, almond shells, cactus leaves
Removal of lead and zinc ions from water by low cost adsorbents.
Kinetic studies reveals that blast furnace slag was not effective for lead and zinc removal, and the bentonite and fly ash were effective for Lead and zinc Removal.
Adsorption of heavy metal ions by sawdust of deciduous trees.
The adsorption of heavy metal ions from synthetic solutions was performed using sawdust of beech, linden and poplar trees, and the ion exchange mechanism was confirmed assuming that the alkali-earth metals from the adsorbent are substituted by heavyMetal ions and protons.
Biosorption of heavy metal ions from aqueous solutions by activated sludge
Biosorption experiments were performed using different pretreated activated sludge as bioadsorbent for Cu2+, Cd2+ and Ni2+. Pretreatment with NaOH was found to improve the adsorption capacity of the
Utilization of industrial waste products as adsorbents for the removal of dyes.
The results indicate that inorganic wastes are not suitable for the removal of organic materials, whereas a carbonaceous adsorbent prepared from carbon slurry of fertilizer industry was found to adsorb 198, 211 and 219mg/g of ethyl orange, metanil yellow and acid blue 113 from aqueous solutions.
Simultaneous removal of heavy-metal ions in wastewater samples using nano-alumina modified with 2,4-dinitrophenylhydrazine.
Modified nano-alumina with DNPH is favorable and useful for the removal of these metal ions, and the high adsorption capacity makes it a good promising candidate material for Pb(II),Cr(III) and Cd(II) removal.
Heavy metal precipitation by polycation-polyanion complex of PEI and its phosphonomethylated derivative.
The PPEI-PEI polyelectrolyte complex was found to be more effective than traditional precipitation methods for the treatment of a representative electroless Ni plating waste solution.
