Subject: Wastewater | TP155-156 | Heavy metals | Olive stone | Kinetics | Biosorption | Chemical engineering
A by-product from olive oil production, olive stone, was investigated for the removal of Cd (II), Cr (III) and Pb (II) from aqueous solutions. The kinetics of biosorption are studied, analyzing the effect of the initial concentration of metal and temperature. Pseudo-fir... View more
