    Heavy metals are major toxicants found in industrial wastewater, they adversely affect to the aquatic flora, animals and human beings . In this study, the removal of heavy metals like Pb+2 and Cd+2 from aqueous solution using eco- friendly and low cost activated carbon has been investigated . The carbon is prepared from Achyranthes aspera Linn. stem by treatment with conc. H2SO4. The powdered raw material and chemically treated material of specific micron size is used by employing various temperature. The results revealed that the removal of dye by chemically treated material is more effective than raw material at higher temperature. The experimental data is analyzed using Freundlich and Langmuir isotherm models and it is fit with these isotherm models. The adsorption capacity (Qm) for Pb+2 and Cd+2 is calculated at 25,35 and450C . It is found to be a potential adsorbent for removal of Pb+2 and Cd+2 from effluents.
