What is it about?

This work is about the producing of a profitable adsorbents from crustaceous shelfish shell residue. The shells were calcinated and characterized to assess its properties. The Nylosan Blue was adsorbed by the calcined shelfish shells with great efficiency.

Why is it important?

Anomalocardia brasiliana shelfish shells is a low cost and adsorbent with great availability in the environment.


The search for low cost adsorbents Will continue being explored by researchers.
