Adsorption Behaviour Of Copper Ions On Elderberry, Gooseberry And Paprika Waste From Aqueous Solutions

The adsorption of Cu(II) metal ions onto dried elderberry, gooseberry and paprika residues have been studied. The residues are generated in food industry and they may be potentially used for removing metal ions from wastewater. The fruits are a source of biologically active compounds, such as flavonoids, phenols, carotenoids, capsaicinoids and vitamins, which exhibit various benefits to human health, but also sorption properties in relation to metal ions [1]. There are many methods to remove heavy metals from wastewater e.g. membrane separation, ion-exchange, coagulation, chemical precipitation and adsorption. However, biosorption is a promising technology to remove metal ions, because it uses cheap and environmentally-friendly biomaterials as agricultural by-products [2]. In this research the adsorption of Cu(II) metal ions from aqueous solutions at pH 4 has been investigated. The conducted experiments showed the effect of mass of different biosorbents on Cu(II) adsorption. The results suggest that elderberry, gooseberry and paprika waste may be an effective adsorbent for copper ions removal.
