Abstract
Human hair natural fiber is mainly considered a waste in our society and its disposal can cause a major environmental impact. Hence, its valorization as a biosorbent of pollutants such as heavy metals is an interesting route to explore since it can reduce the amount of waste and at the same time contributes to the circular economy strategy. In this work, the ability of two kinds of human hairs, used as biosorbents to remove Cr(III), Ni(II), Co(II), Mn(II), Cu(II), Zn(II), Cd(II) and Pb(II) ions ...
