Environmental management is a issue in recent decades such as waste production
by indutry especially wastewater. Needed biomaterial to solve wastewater
problem caused biomaterial is a green material give not negative impact for
environment. Biochar is a green leap toward reducing heavy metals content on
wastewater using coconut shell waste. Biochar has been world used in many
studies and practical applications are only limited to remediation of contaminants
on soil. This paper describes the basic understanding and recent development
biochar as an innovative solution for treating wastewater. Thus, this paper is
expected to provide clear information about biochar to reducing heavy metals
content on wastewater and inspiration for ongoing and future research benefit
