Our research involves biosorption, biodegradation, bioaccumulation, and phytoremediation. Environmental pollution has become a critical issue and current waste treatment methods are no longer satisfactory. The modern thinking in the area of waste treatment is to make use of waste from one industry by another industry, which benefits both. One paradigm involves removal of heavy metal ions from solution by adsorption using agricultural waste materials.
