Applications of statistical optimization techniques like artificial neural networks wererarely applied for biosorption systems. Statistically based experimental designs likeresponse surface methodology (Artificial neural networks) are more efficient, as variablesare tested simultaneously. Moreover, the interactions between different variables can beestimated. The present study aims to evaluate the efficiency of zinc sorption on
using Artificial intelligence techniques. Four process parameters (initialconcentrations, pH, Biosorbent dosage and biosorbents particle size) served as inputs tothe neural network models, and percentage biosorption of zinc served as a single outputof each model. Genetic algorithms were used to optimize the input space of the neuralnetwork models to monitor the zinc sorption on G
. About 0.1g of
was found to be enough to remove 80.51% of zinc of 20mg/l from 30 mlaqueous solution in 30 min. RSM (ANN) were carried out to obtain response surfacemodel describing zinc biosorption at various process conditions: initial concentration (20-100), pH (2-6), Biosorbent dosage (0.1-0.5) and biosorbent particle size (75-212).
Heavy metals are released into aquatic ecosystems as by-products from various industrial processes and acid-mine drainage residues. They are highly toxic in ionic form as well ascompound form. They are soluble in water and may be rapidly absorbed by the livingorganisms. Zinc is one of the heavy metal enters the environment as the result of mining,
