Trace elements are inorganic chemicals usually occurring in small amounts in nature. Trace element deficiencies and contamination are increasing due to the increasing industrialization of farming systems, industrial pollution, and other factors. In the right amounts, trace elements are beneficial; in fact, several trace elements are essential for human and animal by: Book DescriptionTable of ContentsAuthor(s) Book Description. The surge of interest in cannabis-based medicinal products has put an extremely high demand on testing capabilities, particularly for contaminants such as heavy metals, which are naturally taken up through the roots of the plants from the soil, growing medium and fertilizers, but can also be negatively impacted by the grinding . Effective management of contaminants in the environment is a complex and challenging problem with worldwide ramifications. The Trace Metals and Other Contaminants in the Environment series deals with the identification, assessment and management of human and ecological risks associated with natural and human-derived contaminants in the environment.

This paper addresses the impacts of different separation strategies on trace metal concentrations. Separation strategies considered include source separation of either compostables or contaminants prior to collection, wet/dry collection schemes, and manual or mechanical separation . efficient heavy metal adsorption techniques [14]. Biosorption is considered as a user-friendly, effective purification and separation method for the removal of heavy metals from industrial wastewater with the advantages of specific affinity, low cost and simple design [15, 16]. Therefore it has been widely. Other ion exchangers which have been applied for environmental analysis include the Dionex CS-2 (Rahmalan et al., ) for heavy metals in air particulates and the CS-3 column (Ekechukwu et al., ) for the simultaneous separation of heavy metals, actinides, alkaline earths and lanthanides in waste sludge using an acid gradient with Arsenazo. Industrial wastewater sources. Industrial wastewater streams containing heavy metals are produced from different industries. Electroplating and metal surface treatment processes generate significant quantities of wastewaters containing heavy metals (such as cadmium, zinc, lead, chromium, nickel, copper, vanadium, platinum, silver, and titanium) from a variety of applications.

The higher BLL concentration and prevalence of chronic diseases in adults might be due to their long-term exposure to heavy metal contamination environment and higher background level of heavy metals.
