Chicken eggshells, Banana peels and Pumpkins are used as good adsorbents for removing heavy metals from contaminated water, which have been observed and studied currently. The effects of various parameters such as pH, agitation speed and contact time was studied and good results were obtained at pH 7, 100 rpm and 90 mins of contact time. The results indicate that usage of household waste such as these can be used as a good biosorbent for removal of heavy metals on a large scale and create effective, cheap and efficient methods in treating wastewater.
