The heavy metals impressive elimination from industrial wastewater is one of the most significant topics for industrialized nations. Cadmium Removal of aqueous solutions was investigated utilizing activated carbon produced from Salvadora persica stems. Batch adsorption experimentations have been conducted as a pH function, connection time, solute concentration, and absorbing dose. The optimal pH needed for highest absorbing was about five for cadmium. The highest connection time for the stability condition is 180 minute at the absorbing dose rate of 2.5 g. The highest proficiency of cadmium removal by activated carbon has been 81.7 percent. The outcomes have been equipped very well with both Langmuir and Freundlich isotherm.
