Utilization of natural bio adsorbents in removing heavy metals from wastewater becoming a great concern nowadays as the effluents from municipal and agricultural sector as well as industries such as electroplating, mining operation, tanneries, smelting, storage batteries industries, and etc. are widely being produced. This initiates so much worries to the community since heavy metals can generate many health problems especially to human via food consumption as well as affect the tranquillity of environmental ecosystem. Development of research associated to algae as natural bio adsorbent become an important field of a study recently since algae are said to be an effective and suitable alternative that can be used to remove heavy metals in wastewater replacing the conventional techniques of removing heavy metals. This study proposed algae wastes (Ulva fasciata and Gracilaria changii) as low-cost adsorbents for the removal of copper [Cu(II)] and lead [Pb(II)] from wastewater. Adsorption of Cu(II) and Pb(II) by algal biomass-based activated carbon was conducted using batch tests.
