About this book

A comprehensive account of the alternative technology of heavy metal adsorption by living organisms. Focusing primarily on the aquatic environment, this book gives detailed accounts of the wide variety of biomass types used as sorbents and the economically viable full-scale systems which are currently available for commercial usage.


Biosorption of heavy metals - an introduction; the use of algae as metal biosorpents; general bacterial sorptive processes; fungi as biosorpents; biosorbents of lanthanides, actinides and related materials; scavenging trace concentrations of metals;low-cost biosorpents - batch processes; biosorption using unusual biomasses; low cost adsorbents in continuing processes; biosorption - the future.
