    Description

    As the world population grows, there is a growing awareness that our environment is getting more polluted. Clean water is becoming a critical issue for many parts of the world for human, animal and agricultural use. Filtration systems to clean our air and water are a growing industry. There are many approaches to removing contaminates from our water supply ranging from reverse osmosis to simple sand filters. Agricultural residues represent a low cost, renewable, available, and sustainable resource that can remove metal ions from water.
