ABSTRACT
The effective removal of heavy metals from Electroplating Effluent is among the most important issues for many industrialized countries. Pulses Peels were used to produce adsorbent through environment friendly process Pulses Peels were crushed, washed and dried and used for Chromium and Iron removal. Chromium and Iron adsorption onto Pulses Peels was depended upon the controlling parameters such as mesh size and types of pulses peel. The objective of this study is to contribute in the search for less expensive adsorbents and their utilization. Batch studies showed that 32.11%, 47.062%, 13.97%, 28.23% of Cr ions and 73.56%, 54.02%, 66.09%, 4.59% of Fe ions were removed from aqueous solution by pulses peels.
