TREATMENT OF FLUORIDE CONTAMINATED WATER USING COCONUT WASTE AS NATURAL ADSORBENTAastha Arora and Rajendra Mathur
The removal of fluoride from groundwater has been researched using a variety of treatment approaches. The adsorption process for defluoridation is widely used in poor nations since it is a technologically and economically viable method that is both environmentally beneficial and simple to implement. As a result, it is necessary to monitor defluoridation using a low-cost and simple technology. This research examines defluoridation using a natural absorbent, coconut husk, which is both inexpensive and effective. The appropriate dose of adsorbent was also determined for improved fluoride removal percentage efficiency. Based on the findings, it can be inferred that coconut husk can be a low-cost replacement for Defluoridation in the process of removing fluoride from water.
