Abstract

For having a quality and hygiene water, toxic metals have to be removed. Major threat for human health is caused by discharges of industrial effluents into water bodies. Hence in this paper, batch adsorption techniques have been used for the toxic metal removal from drinking water. Dry jack fruit peels from vegetable and fruit waste has proved to be an effective adsorbent for removal of heavy metals removal. This study was carried out to investigate the adsorption of heavy metals from water using dry jack fruit peels synthesized from the fruit waste. The removal efficiency of jackfruit peel has showed 60% of lead removal. The variation of contact time, pH, concentration and dosage of adsorbent are the parameters followed in this work.
