Abstract
Rare earth elements (REE) present multiple applications in technological devices but also drawbacks (scarcity and water contaminant). The current study aims to valorise the banana wastes - banana rachis (BR), banana pseudo-stem (BPS) and banana peel (BP) as sustainable adsorbent materials for the recovery of REE (Nd3+, Eu3+, Y3+, Dy3+ and Tb3+). The adsorbent materials were characterized using analytical techniques such as: Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy, X-ray photoelectron spectroscop...
