Abstract

The ability of natural adsorbents (MM, IC and CHF) to remove cadmium from synthetic
wastewater was evaluated by comparing with PAC. All experiments were carried out
under batch mode. The influence of initial metal concentration has been studied. The
order of cadmium removal was found as PAC>CHF>IC>MM. The percentage removal of
cadmium at 5ppm by CHF, IC and MM was 88.2, 73.6 and 33.4 respectively. As the
metal ion concentration increases, the percentage removal of cadmium decreases. The
high percentage removal at low metal ion concentration and low production cost make IC
and CHF the attractive sorbents for the removal of cadmium from waste streams.
