Removal of Cu2+ and Ni2+ from Aqueous Solution by Algerian Clay Materials
Numerous studies illustrate the important role of material clays as adsorbents for removal of hazardous organic pollutants and of heavy metal ions from wastewater, (Boufatit et al., 2007; Jaynes et al., 1991; Khazali et al., 2007; Kocaoba et al., 2007; Kwon et al., 2001; Sheng et al., 2001; Uribe et al, 2002). Adsorption of heavy metals onto clay minerals is one of the interests in the adsorption of metal ions for recovery purposes, because of its simplicity and efficiency (Kocaoba et al., 2007). The removal of heavy metals from industrial wastewater, which are hazardous and potentially toxic to the environment, remains a challenge and constitutes a difficult problem.
