The Removal of Cd(II) by Using Local Materials for the Improvement of Quality of Life

Chinnawat Satsananan
Abstract—This work is aimed at the removal of Cd(II) by using local materials in community for make the quality of life of people get better. The result found that all types of local materials could be absorbed Cadmium (Cd) in all type of local materials that can found in the community. The highest capacity on the adsorption of Cd(II) was shell, egg peel, coconut and carbon, respectively. The results shown that this method could be reduced the amounts of Cd(II) in contaminated waste water before release to the community by using local materials in community. This method could be apply to eliminate heavy metals before release to the environment.

Index Terms—Atomic absorption spectrometry, Cd(II), heavy metals, local material.
