Abstract

Recently, aquaculture industries are showing positive growth in our country, which led to a severe retrogression in the water environment. Copper and manganese can cause bioaccumulation in the aquatic organism and creates potential danger for people who eat the contaminated fish and many environmental degradations. This research is done to utilize the waste from oil palm industry to develop into activated carbon that can used for heavy metals removal. Data involved the investigation on different dosage of activated carbon (0.0.25g and 1.0g) on varies concentration of metals (0, 1ppm and 5ppm). The research has proved that copper and manganese that can be found in aquaculture wastewater can be removed by the activated carbon that is developed from Oil Palm Petiole Felt-Sheath. The research shows that larger amount of activated carbon can remove higher concentration of metal concentration. Copper also have higher ability to be adsorbed by activated carbon compare to manganese because the copper has higher electronegativity and lower ionic radius, hence it has greater ability to be adsorbed by activated carbon compare to manganese. The findings of this paper will be useful for application in the industries of aquaculture farm to treat their waste water.
