A Short Review on Arsenic Removal from Water

Authors(1) :-Sunil Jayant Kulkarni

Wastewater treatment is gaining importance because of increasing awareness about health effects of water pollutants and stringent norms of regulatory bodies. Removal of heavy metals from industrial effluent can be carried out by various methods like ion exchange, adsorption, activated sludge process, electro coagulation, membrane separation processes, precipitation, coagulation etc. Arsenic is one such heavy metal which contributes to heavy metal pollution. The research on arsenic removal includes studies on solute up take, kinetic and isotherm studies. The present review aims at summarizing the research carried out for removal of arsenic from wastewater.
