Abstract: In a developing country like India,. the rush for rapid industrial development coupled with lack of awareness about metal toxicity has become a serious concern to environmentalists. Some technologies, which are used in developed countries for detoxifying metals from industrial effluents, cannot be used in India due to economic constraints. Therefore, there is an urgent need for developing an economical and environment-friendly technology. At the same time, it is essential to prevent the loss of metals through the effluents. The 'Metal Biosorption' process provides a promising alternative method for economical recovery of metals.
