Removal of noxious materials such as heavy metal from wastewater is one of the biggest environmental challenges that suffer the economy nowadays. On the basis of their versatility, environmental friendliness, biosorption is proved to be a most economical and efficient technology, which is used extensively for their removal from the aqueous media. Among the various developed biosorption used so far, flyash shows a unique impact on the fast sorption and rapid removal of toxic impurities from the aqueous medium. Batch sorption experiments were carried out to study the process and several parameters such as Initial pH of sorbent, effect of contact time, effect of sorbent dosage and effect of metal concentration were analysed in these experiments. The effects of any one of those previously mentioned parameters on the biosorption capacity were studied, while the other parameters were kept constant. It was found that the obtained maximum sorption capacities of flyash for the removal of Zn(II) and Ni(II) were quite high. This provide us to use flyash as a low cost biosorbent material to clean up the water in the environment from toxic heavy metals studies.
