Water Pollution continues to be a threat throughout the world, being an important source in the ecosystem it is necessary to reduce the contamination. The Effluents from textile industries are one of the major contributors for the water pollution. This work investigates the adsorption efficiency of bio char produced from Curry tree stem for the removal of Safranin-O dye from waste water. Batch adsorption experiment was done to study the effect of operational parameters such as adsorbent dosage, time, temperature and initial dye concentration. Thus our results provide novel perception into the potential of biochar to remove Safranin-O from textile effluents.
