Arsenic Remediation with Dried Plant

Quantity vs. Time Experiment

For this experiment, we want to analyze for 2 things:

  • The time to reduce the arsenic contamination level below 10μg/L (WHO standard).
  • Adsorbent quantity vs. level of contamination.
  • Various experiments of contamination level vs. amount of adsorbent was conducted and the results are as follow:

    Water Lily (Nymphaea)

    Nymphaeaceae (commonly called water lilies) is a family of flowering plants. They live as rhizomatous aquatic herbs in temperate and tropical climates around the world. The family contains five genera with about 70 known species. Water lilies are rooted in soil in bodies of water, with leaves and flowers floating on or emergent from the surface.
