Bharti Ahirwar, Dr. Ashok Kumar Sharma and Dr. Sarita Sharma
Literature review shows that excess concentration of copper cause various diseases and also harmful for water species life. Different conventional remedies are available besides all these; adsorption method is very cheap and cost effective. Main purpose of this study is to check the efficiency of potato peels waste as a low cost adsorbent. Copper adsorption onto potato peel powder was studied with different parameters such as pH, contact time, adsorbent doses and pollutant concentration. Result shows that maximum percent of copper removal was 76.50% at pH 6 with 10 ppm metal concentration and 5.0 gm adsorbent dose at ambient temperature.
