Abstract:

Clean and safe water is critical to preserving the Earth’s rich biodiversity. Water pollution has become a serious problem worldwide. Materials from agricultural waste are known to be rich in functional groups such as carboxyl, thiol, amide and hydroxyl groups, which enable the binding of pollutants to the surface. Taking advantage of the compositional properties of agricultural wastes, the researcher continues to explore the development of low-cost adsorbents that utilize various available agricultural wastes in water and wastewater treatment as a fascinating field. The article summarizes current research on developing adsorbents, utilizing readily available agricultural wastes to adsorb a wide range of water pollutants. Additionally, this article attempted to explain the optimization procedures, modification strategies and factors influencing adsorption capacity. The literature review revealed that agricultural waste adsorbents have equivalent adsorption capacity to conventional adsorbents. In most cases, surface modification treatments result in an obvious improvement in absorption capacity
