The data contain additional information for the production of activated carbons (AC) and carbon foams (CF) from agroindustrial wastes, orange peel (OP) and sugarcane bagasse (SCB). The data were obtained from characterization of carbonaceous structures (AC and CF) and their used in the metal ions removal contained in polluted water. The data can be useful or used by researchers to compare the application of different biomasses to produce activated carbon or carbon foams for wastewater treatment. The data are valuable because it provides information on adsorption equilibrium; using two adsorbent materials: activated carbons and carbon foams synthesized from agro-industrial wastes (orange peel and sugarcane bagasse). Data show that agro-industrial wastes from orange peel and sugarcane bagasse can remove heavy metal ions and can be proposed for their used in treatment of water. BET data provide information on the effect of activation temperature on the pore size distribution and surface area of the material. Zeta potential (ζ) data give important insight on the effect of pH on the charge surface of material in relation to their capacity adsorption. The data from this research open up alternatives to propose and study orange peel and sugarcane bagasse to remove other types of contaminants. -The data folder for the analysis of metal removal contains the graphs of activated carbon synthesized from orange peel and sugar cane bagasse at 500 and 700 °C, as well as the data sheets. -The BET isotherms folder contains the graphs derived from the analysis for the removal of copper and lead using activated carbon and carbon foams as a function of temperature and pH. -Particle size distribution analysis from hydrodynamic diameter during DLS measurements is presented in the form of histograms and distribution curves for activated carbon at 700 °C in the folder particle size analysis. -The folder labeled as pore size distribution contains the complete graphs of the activated carbon and carbon foam systems analyzed from both SCB and OP agroindustrial waste sources as a function of activation temperature. also the source data are reported. -Finally, an analysis of zeta potential (zeta potential folder) as a function of pH is presented for activated carbon and carbon foams at a temperature of 700 °C. Likewise, you can find the source data obtained directly from the equipment used for the characterization
