Manganese metal is seen as one of the biggest contributor to water pollution in the planet. although there exist conventional technologies to remove heavy metal from water, it is either economical or ineffective. Adsorption is seen as a good solution to the current problem and with wide abundance of banana peels available in Malaysia which makes it cheap, the problem o heavy metal pollution are hope to be reduced. This would add value to the agricultural commodities. This project aims to fmd a method to develop the most efficient adsorbent from mana peels. In the project, the banana peels is initially dried, grinded and extraction study was Jne to determine the adsorption capacity. Development of the banana peels characteristics is me using CHN Elemental Analyzer and FTIR. The adsorption study was done at different mtact time, different dosage and also different manganese concentration at constant room mperature. The final result obtained shows that the banana peels has the potential to be tum ,to an efficient adsorbent in adsorption of manganese.
