removal of Zn, Cd and Pb from pulp and paper mill effluents BY MANGO PLANT LEAVS (MPL)
Mango plant leaves were found to have natural capacity to accumulte heavy metals at significant concentration. Phytoremediation or biosorption for a new technology is aimed at removing these metals from dilute solutions or from the industrial waste like pulp and paper mill wastewater.The concentration of these metals was determined by ICP-AES. The method also indicated that the order of adsorption affinity was Pb2+>Cd2+>Zn2+, respectively.
