Low cost Sugarcane Bagasse Ash as anAdsorbent for Dye Removal from Dye Effluent

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 with the help of Thomas,Yoon-Nelson model .The removal of dyes at different flow rate (contact time),bed height 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.The result shows that, bagasse ash is a good adsorbent for dye effluent treatment.

Index Terms—Sugarcane Bagasse Ash, dye, adsorption,effluent treatment, water pollution.
