Removal of Dye by Adsorption : A Review

  title={Removal of Dye by Adsorption : A Review},
  author={T. Seow and C. K. Lim},
Dye removal from industrial wastewater is an important environmental concern. So far, various physical and chemical treatment methods have been reviewed for the removal of dyes such as biological degradation, ion exchange, chemical precipitation, reverse osmosis, coagulation, flocculation, etc. However, these treatment processes have their limitations such as high cost, generation of toxic sludge, etc. Adsorption which is the most economical and effective has become the most preferred method… Expand
