Phytoremediation is an ecofriendly that has shown promising results for the contaminants like heavy metals. Because of its advantages as a cost-effective, efficient, environment- and eco-friendly technology based on the use of metal-accumulating plants. This paper aims to compile some information about heavy metals of arsenic, cadmium, lead, copper and zinc (As, Cd, Pb, Cu and Zn) sources, effects and their treatment. It also reviews deeply about phytoremediation technology, including the heavy metal uptake mechanisms and several research studies associated about heavy metals (As, Cd, Pb, Cu and Zn) and aquatic plants are used to process these heavy metals.
Investigation of the possibility of treating wastewater containing Cu2+ heavy metal with activated carbon material prepared from macadamia husk with activating K2CO3 in Optimal conditions such as temperature 6500C and burning time is 60 minutes. Survey results show that coal with the ability to handle heavy metals is best at 84.02% in optimal conditions such as pH=5 and time. Baking is 30 minutes. The results show similarities with other research results and are applicable to wastewater treatment Cu2+.
