Abstract

The water pollution is a major problem to our environmental caused by several sources. The one of water pollution source came from industrial wastewater that contributed by several industries (manufacturing, semiconductor and etc). The assimilation of Pb (II) in the human body of relatively small amounts over a long period of time can lead to multifunctioning of certain organs and chronic toxicity. Therefore, the wastewater treatment is very important to reduce the concentration of heavy metal so that it can be less harmful. In the previous study, there are many ways to treat the wastewater such as precipitation, neutralization, ion exchange and adsorption processes. Adsorption method that uses decanter cake as the adsorbent was chosen as suitable method of wastewater treatment due to its capabilities and also low cost raw material. Decanter cake is a one of waste in palm oil mill waste from palm oil production industry. This research aim to reuse and regenerated decanter cake as a heavy metal ions removal from industrial wastewater. Pure decanter cake was drying at 110 oC in 12 hours than held to 200 oC, 400 oC, 600 oC and 760 oC under nitrogen atmosphere. The studies were emphasizing to adsorption capacities in term of contact time, heavy metal concentration and also adsorbent concentration by using Optical Emission Spectrophotometer (OES) for adsorption activities.
