Removal of Dyes from Dye Effluent by Using Sugarcane Bagasse Ash as an Adsorbent

Sachin M.Kanawade and R.W.Gaikwad

Abstract—Sugar cane bagasse ash, an agricultural byproduct, acts as an effective adsorbent for the removal of dyes from aqueous solution. Batch adsorption study was investigated for the removal of Acid Orange-II from aqueous solution. Adsorbents are very efficient in decolorized diluted solution. The effects of bed depth on breakthrough curve, effects of flow rate on breakthrough curve were investigated. The removal of dyes at different flow rate (contact time), bed height, initial dye concentration, column diameter, pH & temperature by Sugarcane Bagasse Ash as an adsorbent has been studied. It is found that percent adsorption of dyes increases by decreasing flow rate from 2 lit/hr to 1 lit/hr, by increasing bed height from 15cm to 45cm, by decreasing initial conc.150mg/lit to 100mg/lit, by increasing column diameter from 2.54cm to 3.5cm,by maintaining neutral pH & at temperature 45ºc than 25ºc & 35ºc.The result shows that, bagasse ash is a good adsorbent for dye effluent treatment.
