  2. 2. DYES  Dyes are organic compounds that can provide bright and lasting color to other substances.  Complex aromatic molecular structures which make them more stable and difficult to biodegrade.  They are designed to resist fading upon exposure to sweat, light, water, and oxidizing agents  Types of dyes: Natural and synthetic.  Used in the textile, leather, paper , rubber, plastic, cosmetics, pharmaceuticals, and food industries.
  3. 3.  Textile industries ranks first in dye usage.  High Effluent Discharge.  The wastewaters discharged from dyeing processes exhibit 1. High BOD 2. High COD 3. Visible Pollutant 4. Hot, alkaline and contain high amounts of dissolved solids.
  4. 4. Harmful Effects Toxic Carcinogenic Mutagenic Teratogenic Retards photosynthetic activity Inhibits growth of aquatic biota
  5. 5. PERMISSIBLE LIMITS  The maximum permissible COD limit is 250 mg/L  The maximum permitted BOD content of < 100 to 300 mg/L.
  6. 6. TREATMENT METHODS By Aerobic Biodegradation Coagulation using alum, lime Chemical oxidation methods using chlorine and ozone Membrane separation Degradation (Chemical, Photo, Bio)  Adsorption
  7. 7. ADSORPTION  Adsorption is the adhesion of atoms, ions, or molecules from a gas, liquid, or dissolved solid to a surface. This process creates a film of the adsorbate on the surface of the adsorbent.  Adsorption is a consequence of surface energy.
  8. 8. TYPES of ADSORPTION  Physisorption (characteristic of weak van der Waals forces)  Chemisorption (characteristic of covalent bonding). It may also occur due to electrostatic attraction.
  9. 9. Properties of Adsorbent  Granular form.  Should not offer a pressure drop.  Large surface area per unit volume.  Solid density.  Porosity.  Ability to develop force of attraction.
  10. 10. BAGASSE AS AN ADSORBENT  Bagasse is the fibrous matter that remains after sugarcane are crushed to extract their juice.  Available abundantly.  It can also be used in raw form for adsorption.  It is also used for some dyes in chemically activated form.  It is an effective and cost efficient adsorbent.  It can be converted into granular form.  In fact, in some dyes, bagasse is found more efficient than AC or some adsorbents and can be regenerated.

  28. 28. Conclusion  Increase in pH increased the adsorption rate. For pH values < 7 chemically activated bagasse was more effective , for pH ≥ 7 both adsorbents were found to be equally efficient.  For initial dye conc., the amount of dye adsorbed initially increased with time but attained equilibrium within 45 min.  For adsorbent dosage, in the first 15 min the adsorption rate rapidly increased and then it proceeded gradually till equilibrium. An optimum equilibrium %removal of 95.61 was achieved with 12 g/L by chemically activated bagasse of adsorbate conc. of 100 ppm.
