Removal of Methylene Blue from Effluent by Using Activated Carbon and Water Hyacinth as Adsorbent

Sachin M.Kanawade and R.W.Gaikwad

Abstract—Activated carbon has been widely used as a good adsorbent. Water hyacinth may be an alternative of activated carbon. This work deals with the study of methylene blue adsorption on activated carbon as well as water hyacinth ash from aqueous solution. Batch kinetic and isotherm studies were carried out at different conditions like, contact time, methylene blue concentration etc for both adsorbents. The Freundlich and Langmuir adsorption models have been mathematical description of adsorption equilibrium and finally it has been that observed that the experimental data fitted more accurate to the Langmuir model for both cases.

Index Terms—Adsorption, Activated Carbon, Water Hyacinth Ash, Ethylene Blue, Wastewater.
