Heavy metals are micropollutants to cause harmful even when released in very small quantities. Toxicity develops through bioaccumulation. The need to reduce these emissions is no longer discussed. Much work has been performed for heavy metal removal in synthetic wastewater; however, heavy metals are mixed with other pollutants in actual releases. The objective of this work is the study the heavy metals removal in real waste water. The use of the raw chitin shows itself of big potential for the treatment of the liquid discharges of the studied unity. it showed itself capable of treating heavy metals loads superior to 200 mg / l by presenting returns we purge varying between 90 and 97 , such as the case of Cu2 +. The valuation of the raw chitin of the shellfishes, as solid waste still rejected in Morocco, is situated in this context as an economically interesting adsorbing material which can be a big interest at the level of the recovery of heavy metals in waste water and which can do a service to the cleanup of industrial waste. © Research India Publications.
