Nowadays environmental pollution by heavy metals is arising as the most endangering tasks to both water sources and atmosphere quality. The treatment of heavy metals is of special concern due to their recalcitrance and persistence in the environment. To limit the spread of the heavy metals within water sources, flyash as biosorbent was studied with the aim of removal of aggressive heavy elements including Zn(II), Pb(II) and Ni(II) & Fe(II) . The results indicated that sorption capacity of metal ion by flyash is favoured. Affinity and efficiency sorption parameters including contact time, initial concentration of metal ions, the dosage and competitive bisorption behaviors were studied. The results showed that the Pseudo second-order reaction fits the reduction of metal ions studied and also showed linear relationship with a high correlation coefficient.
