Adsorption of Dyes from Actual Effluent
Adsorption of color components from the effluent in practice is a challenge as often the actual efficiency of the adsorption process is masked by the competitive adsorption of multiple species present in an effluent. The chapter illustrates the adsorption phenomena using one of the commonly used adsorbents detailed in Chap. 2 for removal of toxic dyes from an effluent. Further analyses were done for the kinetics and isotherm for multicomponent adsorption.
