Abstract

Wastewater is way too valuable to throw away, especially in a world where there is an increasing scarcity of drinkable water. Industries like photography, electroplating, mining etc leads to inclusion of heavy metals in the waste and ground water, posing life threatening threats to all forms of life. Lack of treatment facilities for such heavy metals have deteriorated the water quality for aquatic resources, this deterioration in turn causes health problems for the masses at large. Thus, effective removal of heavy metals from aqueous wastes is among the most important issues that can be effectively tackled by using novel technologies by using fruit peel wastes. Fruit peels are rich in cellulosic materials mainly, pectin, which is structurally very much similar to alginate, found in brown algae. It is primarily known to be responsible for the uptake of heavy metal ions. This paper critically reviews and compiles the work reported by various scientists and researchers on the utilisation of fruit peels as biosorbents. The article also considers the future perspectives in the field of biosorbent development by using agricultural waste for water treatment.
