Abstract Sawdust, a relatively abundant and inexpensive material is currently being investigated as an adsorbent to remove contaminants from water. Chemical substances including dyes, oil, toxic salts and heavy metals can be removed very effectively with the organic material. This article presents a brief review on the role of sawdust in the removal of contaminants. Studies on the adsorption of various pollutants by different sawdust materials are reviewed and the adsorption mechanism, influencing factors, favorable conditions, etc. discussed in this paper. Some valuable guidelines can be drawn for either scientific research or industrial design.
