Abstract

Discharge of heavy metals from metal process industries is known to have adverse effects on the environment. Conventional treatment technologies for removal of heavy metals from aqueous solutions are non- economical and generate huge quantities of chemical sludge. Bio-sorption of heavy metals by chemically inactive non-living biomass of microbial of plant origin is an innovative and technology of these pollutants from aqueous solutions. The operating conditions such as pH, dose required, initial metal concentrations and treatment performance are presented, recovery adsorbent was also discussed. The efficiency of fixed bed system depends on the initial concentration of influent rate and bed height. The effects of parameters on the adsorption of Cr(VI) on saw dust were examined. A simpler approach to fixed bed adsorption has been proposed by Hutchin which is called bed – depth - service time (BDST). Model service time with parameters initial concentrations, flow rate and bed heights. A bed height of 3.0 cm having 2.0 gm adsorbent was used, to study the effects of initial metal ion concentration. The metal ion concentration varied from 20 - 40 ppm and flow rate of 10 ml/min, at required pH. The effects of flow rate on adsorption of Cr(VI) was studied with 20 ppm of Cr(VI) solution was allowed to pass through the column of an adsorbent 3.0 cm at different flow rates. Effects of metal initial concentration of 20 ppm, flow rate of 10 ml/min, bed heights contains different weights were used to study.
