Wastewater treatment by adsorption with electrochemical regeneration using reactive brown 9 as adsorbate.
Keywords:Adsorption. Electrochemical Regeneration, Wastewater Treatment, dye removal,
Textile industries are producing a huge amount of wastewater that contains harmful pollutants. The main pollutants in textile wastewater are dyes. In this work, adsorption and electrochemical regeneration of adsorbent Nyex 1000 have been studied using Reactive Brown 9 dye as adsorbate. Nyex 1000 successfully removed the dye from water, and then the adsorbent was regenerated electrochemically. The Regenerated adsorbent was retreated several times to check the change in regeneration efficiency. Regeneration efficiency remained more than 90% each time. To find more effective method of finding adsorbent capacity, kinetics were studied. It was found that Pseudo first order kinetic was more effective than pseudo second order kinetic.
