Sustainable Approach for Adsorption of Zinc(II) Ions from Aqueous Solution

Sustainable Approach for Adsorption of Zinc(II) Ions from Aqueous Solution

Heavy metals pollution and disposal of agricultural waste (such as rice husk) are the major

environmental issues. Indeed, a sustainable approach such as reusing or modifying the agricultural

waste as the adsorbent to remove the heavy metals from wastewater is the most desired solution of

these environmental issues. However, investigation on the potential use of the agricultural waste as

the adsorbent is still required. In this context, this chapter explores a study on adsorption of a heavy

metal, namely zinc(II) ions from aqueous solutions using thermally treated rice husk by investigation

on the effects of heating temperature and period of rice husk, pH, initial Zn(II) ions concentration,

adsorption temperature and contact time, and adsorbent dosage on the adsorption performance. In

addition, significant factors, and interaction effects of these factors are discussed in this chapter.

Besides, characteristics of the adsorbent is presented in the chapter which can be useful for the future

application.
