Microstructure of three-dimensional aluminosilicate which similar to zeolite cause geopolymer based adsorbent accepted in the treatment of wastewater. This paper presents an investigation on the copper removal from the wastewater by varying the solid to liquid ratio in the fly ash, kaolin and sludge-based geopolymer adsorbent. The adsorption test was conducted to study the efficiency of the adsorbent and the copper concentration was examined by using Atomic Adsorption Spectrometry (AAS). The optimum solid to liquid ratio with the highest percentage removal were 1.0, 0.5 and 0.8 for fly ash-based geopolymer, kaolin-based geopolymer and sludge-based geopolymer adsorbent.
