|Abstract:||A realistic scenario is that man’s use of metals seriously began to affect the environment during the Industrial Revolution. Today, two thousand years later, we can say to be in the Metal Removal Age and we are all too aware of the risks inherent to the uncontrolled dissemination of heavy metals into the environment. From the environmental point of view, the metals that are of greatest concern are those that, either by their presence or their accumulation, can have a toxic or an inhibitory effect on living beings. Metals can be dispersed, both naturally and by man’s activities, into any of the earth’s compartments: water, soil or air. However, the water and wastewater will be the main focus of this work.|
