Abstract

The biotic and abiotic components of environment interact with each other to maintain a balance but the alteration of these components creates imbalance in the nature and results in pollution. Various factors are directly and indirectly affecting the environment and have become a serious threat in human health systems causing life threatening diseases. One of the major concerns that cause environmental pollution is water pollution. The presence of heavy metals and toxic substances in the water may harm the human health due to the bioaccumulation of metals into the body by various uses and purposes. The removal of heavy metals from the water by various physical and chemical methods is quite expensive and sometimes need additional steps which may take long time. In the present study it is aimed to remove heavy metals from water by using natural bio-adsorbent which are easily available in our surroundings and are economically low in cost. The wastewater is collected from Siltara industrial area and the traces of heavy metals are detected by analytical technique and wastewater is being treated with bio-adsorbent. The sample is further studied for pH and test for heavy metal detection after treatment with bio-adsorbent. The results shows that the cortex of the fruits with the high potential to be used as support for heavy metal removal in future.
