Adsorption of pollution load from tannery effluent by using Neem Sawdust as an adsorbent
Author(s): Pushpendra Kushwaha, Kanjan Upadhyay
Abstract: Adsorption of chromium ions from tannery effluent was studied by using Neem Sawdust with several parameters including contact time, pH of solution and adsorbent dosages. Neem Sawdust (NS) was the effective for removal efficiency reached 84% at contact time 120 minute and pH 2. The results investigated that chromium loaded Neem Sawdust (NS) biomass can be disposed off by incineration or used in furnace as a fuel. The results investigated that Neem Sawdust can be used as a good adsorbent for the removal of Cr(VI). Thus, the adsorbents prepared from Neem Sawdust (NS) could be used for removal of chromium ions from tannery effluent.
