This paper is based on the idea of adaptation under which we mean the replacement of one element in a system with another with similar aspects. The first adaptation comes from the replacement of orthophospheric acid H3PO4 by arsenious acid H3AsO4. There is a close relation between calcium-sulfate and calcium carbonate-arsenate species. The main objective of this note is to give an explicit formula for the ratio of each arsenal species to the total and to make an adaptation of the former by the latter to develop a new adsorption material of arsenic acid which spends almost no energy. Some recently proposed methods of using calcium sulphate or other material has ambivalent aspects regarding energy spending as well as the treatment after adsorption.
