Topic : Dye Removal from Waste Water Using Low Cost Adsorbents

Authors:A.G.Deshmukh || P.S.Randive, P.S.Deshmukh, S.Bakhade

Abstract:This study is designed to investigate the performance of Low cost adsorbents for removal Methylene Blue Dye. The adsorbents are synthesized in the laboratory, form the agricultural waste like Orange peel and Rice Husk. The study is conducted by batch treatment method for various pH levels and dye concentration. The dye concentrations were measured using a spectrophotometer. The comparative study is done by plotting the adsorption isotherms for the materials under study and conventionally used activated carbon.Through the experimental results, it was found that Efficiency of PAC as an adsorbent for MB dye remains near about same at all the pH values. Removal of MB dye is significantly affected by pH of the system. In the present investigations, maximum removal of dye was found at pH 9 for RHAC and pH 8 for OP Hence it is always better to work with other sorbents instead of with costlier PAC. All adsorbents followed Freundlich adsorption isotherm. Removal of dye is as high, as near to 100% depending on pH for all..
