Biosorption is the characteristic method for the binding and removal of heavy metal ions contaminants. The biosorption method is effective as an ion exchange treatment even at low metal concentration. This method has green and affordable properties in comparison to predictable techniques. The detection of metal ion toxicants occurs because of the binding of metal ions with biosorbent using biosorption technique. The purpose of this chapter is to discuss the important features of the biosorbent particularly agriculture products. The present chapter also focuses on the removal of metal ion pollutants as well as regeneration methods of the biosorbents. The chapter will help the readers to select suitable sorbents and to take up further research required for pollutant removal using biosorbents, depending on the characteristics of effluents to be treated, industrial applicability, release standards, cost-effectiveness, regulatory requirements, and durable ecological impacts.
