Part of the Environmental Science Research book series (ESRH, volume 2)


Various methods of treatment are generally available for metals removal from wastewater. This paper presents data which shows that two methods of treatment, namely, Lime and Ozonation can be combined to offer a better method of treatment than either method used alone.
