ABSTRACT:
Adsorption of dyes using Activated Carbon is an alternative technology to remove dye from wastewater. Activated carbon prepared from Musa paradisiaca sheath fibre and has been utilized as an adsorbent for the removal of dye from aqueous solution. The batch adsorption studies are carried out by observing the effect of experimental parameter namely pH, adsorbent dosage, equilibrium time and initial concentration. The values obtained from the experiment were analyzed by isotherm model equation and then adsorption kinetics were also analyzed by pseudo first order Lagergren equation. From the analyzes of the data, it is observed that the activated carbon had a good capacity to remove the Bismark brown dye from the aqueous solution.
