Seashell has become one of the most significant aquaculture wastes. In this work clam shell derived from local market was used as adsorbent for removal of Cu2+ heavy metal ion from aqueous solution at different temperature and initial solution pH of 5. The shell was characterized using XRD, SEM and FTIR spectroscopy. The Langmuir and Freundlich adsorption isotherms models were found to be useful for describing the equilibrium adsorption system. The monolayer saturation capacities calculated according to the Langmuir adsorption isotherm were given to be 6.37-13.58 meq g- 1 at 20-40 o C. The adsorption kinetics showed that the adsorption process can be well described with the pseudo-first order model.
