Because several wood barks are massively produced in the forest area of Chungbuk province, it is required to develop technologies for their effective utilization. In this study, three kinds of barks from Robina pseudoacacie, Pinus densiflora, and Castanea crenata were used to remove water-soluble cadmium ions having 10, 20, 50, and 100 mg/L concentrations in each batch experiments, and R. pseudoacacie bark was selected as the most excellent biosorbent. Also, treatments with various acids and bases were performed to increase the removal efficiency of 100 mg/L cadmium ions using R. pseudoacacie bark as a biosorbent. When R. pseudoacacie bark was modified with 0.5 M KOH, the relatively high removal efficiency and adsorption amount of cadmium ions were obtained. In addition, when 9 M KOH-treated R. pseudoacacie bark was used for 30 min, the highest removal efficiency of 100 mg/L cadmium ions was 84.3%. Therefore, this experimental result can be effectively used as an environmental-friendly bioremediation technology to remove cadmium ions existed with various concentrations in water bodies and soils.
