Özet

In this study, the feasibility of using Enteromorpha compressa macroalgae for developing a biosorbent for the use in metal removal from industrial wastewater was discussed in the light of economic models. The net present value and the internal rate of return were used to evaluate the economics of the process. It was concluded that supply to the market as a biosorbent of E. compressa creates an economic benefit to the producing institution.
