Decontamination of heavy metals in water using operational excellence as a quality tool

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution

Abstract

The contamination of heavy metals in water is one of the most critical problems Mexico is facing nowadays, with a latent risk, it is damaging the human health. Making use of technology and quality methodologies such as Operational Excellence (OE), we seek to find a balance to arrive at the consolidation of a scientific project accompanied by the OE methodology, to ensure the success of the project. In addition, it seeks to manage it with a wider vision, aiming at quality standards at a higher level, controlling operations to achieve a competitive advantage, having permanence in the market, providing a high quality and profitable product with innovative applications and trends. Therefore, our project provides a new method for the decontamination of water with a natural bioadsorbent based on grapefruit peels, and where it seeks to solve a problem without harming the environment at affordable costs to society.
