Swine production chain generates residues with potential application in environmental processes. This study aimed at the use of swine hair as a potential biofilter for hexavalent chromium (Cr(VI)) removal from wastewater of tannery industry. The hair was pretreated using H2O2 in alkaline medium, and statistical analysis was carried out to evaluate the hair degradation, as well the Cr(VI) removal by the potential pretreated biofilter. The results showed 99% of Cr(VI) removal in 105 min of treatment in large pH range (1-10). Treated and untreated effluents were submitted to cytotoxicity study using vegetable and animal cells, demonstrating a significant reduction on toxicity to both cells. Therefore, swine hair demonstrated to be a promising residue for heavy metal removal on the perspective of an environmentally friendly technique.
