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.
