Excess amount of copper (II) ion released through industrial wastewater to the environment is very harmful. Presence of high concentration of copper (II) ion in human body may lead to death and cause severe damage to other living species. Ion exchange process is widely used nowadays and it is chosen for this study to treat copper (II) from industrial wastewater in order to enhance water quality. Ion exchange is a reversible chemical reaction wherein ion from the solution is exchanged for a similarly charged ion attached to the resins. In this study, removal of copper (II) ion using a strong acid and strong base resin is done in batch mode. The aim of this study is to determine the optimum condition for copper (II) ion removal from industrial wastewater based on certain criteria; effect of resin dose, initial metal concentration, and pH. Experiments are performed under various condition for resin dose effect (2g, 4g, 6g, 8g, and lOg) followed by the effect of initial metal concentration (lOOOppm, 1500ppm, 2000ppm, 2500ppm, and 3000ppm). The experiment continues for different pH value (4, 7, and 10). The result of removal efficiency is shown in graph and kinetic of the process also been calculated. The effect of waste water treatment to the characterization ofthe resins is determined by using Scanning Electron Microscope (SEM) and Fourier Transform Infrared Spectroscopy (FTIR). Results from this project can help to design an appropriate heavy metal removal technique by using ion exchange process in order to minimize the negative impacts caused by industrial waste water.
