Other conventional methods of treating wastewater contaminated with metals, such as precipitation, ion exchange, membrane electrolytic separation, adsorption, etc., are inefficient or expensive. Adsorption is one of the most widely used methods of removing metal ions from aqueous solutions. The large amounts of natural materials or certain wastes produced in agricultural production represent unused resources, are widely available, and are environmentally friendly, so they have the potential to be used as low-cost adsorbents. Scanning Electron Microscopy (SEM) results can show structural deviations of jujube seed powder, and energy dispersive X-ray spectroscopy (EDX) images reveal the sample's elemental composition to reveal the absorbed sample. Studies have shown that jujube seeds may be the best potential bioadsorbent to remove heavy metals from the sample.

Abstract


Other conventional methods of treating wastewater contaminated with metals, such as precipitation, ion exchange, membrane electrolytic separation, adsorption, etc., are inefficient or expensive. Adsorption is one of the most widely used methods of removing metal ions from aqueous solutions. The large amounts of natural materials or certain wastes produced in agricultural production represent unused resources, are widely available, and are environmentally friendly, so they have the potential to be used as low-cost adsorbents. Scanning Electron Microscopy (SEM) results can show structural deviations of jujube seed powder, and energy dispersive X-ray spectroscopy (EDX) images reveal the sample's elemental composition to reveal the absorbed sample. Studies have shown that jujube seeds may be the best potential bioadsorbent to remove heavy metals from the sample.
