Heavy metals removal
The presence of large quantities of toxic metals such as mercury, lead, cadmium, zinc or others, poses serious health risks to humans, and this threat puts the scientific community under pressure to develop new methods to detect and eliminate toxic contaminants from wastewaters in efficient and economically viable ways.
This section provides details on the latest developments and efforts in general heavy metals removal from wastewater.
