The aim of this paper is to obtain two types of bio-based membranes by electrospinning process: one based on polylactic acid (PLA), and PLA/polyhydroxybutyrate (PHB), and the second by coating the PLA/PHB membrane with chitosan (CS) and CS/activated coal (AC), respectively for removal of micropollutants from aqueous water. The designed bio-based electrospun membranes were analyzed through scanning electron microscopy (SEM), attenuated total reflectance (ATR) – Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy (FT-IR), differential scanning calorimetry (DSC), the removal of solid suspension and Pb (II) from aqueous water. The quality of filtrates was evaluated by physical-chemical methods, while the retaining of Pb (II) from wastewaters was reported.
