Pollutants Removed with Green Adsorbents

Pp. 69-88 (20)

George Z. Kyzas


The main pollutants studied for the treatment of industrial effluents are dyes, heavy metals and others (pesticides, phenols, drugs etc). In this chapter, two crucial adsorption parameters are investigated regarding the adsorption of those pollutants with green adsorbents; equilibrium (adsorption capacity) and kinetics. Many models are described and useful data are given.
