Author information

Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering, University of Edinburgh, UK.


A low-cost activated carbon from the pan-tropical multipurpose tree Moringa oleifera removes the cyanobacterial hepatotoxin microcystin-LR in quantitative amounts from water in batch adsorption trials. The potential of M. oleifera seed husk carbon for cyanobacterial toxin removal in drinking water treatment in tropical countries is discussed.
