Abstract A necessity of ecological standards observance compels to search new dissolution of technological processes development and more effective utilization of natural resources. Most of traditional methods for the removal and recovery of heavy metals ions from industrial wastewater are extremely expensive or inefficient, especially for a large amount of solution at relatively low concentrations. The aim of present study was testing of dietary fiber (DF) isolated from pea beans and wheat bran. Pea beans dietary fiber (PDF) and wheat bran dietary fiber (BDF) was treated as low-cost sorbent of heavy metal ions and basic dyes in different media in order to estimate the opportunity of this sorbent practical use. DF is fibril polymer consisting mainly of polysaccharides (cellulose, hemicellulose, pectin) and lignin.
