Adsorption of Cationic and Anionic Dyes from Aqueous Solution Using Sunflower Husk

The current study deals with the removal of cationic dye (brilliant green) and anionic dye (methyl orange) from wastewater by using sunflower husk as an adsorbent. The operation takes place batch wise by applying several concentrations of the dye solution with various adsorbent amounts, at a range of initial PH values and particle sizes at varying contact time intervals. The percent of dye removed for two dyes increased with increasing time and adsorbent dose and decreased with increasing the dye concentration and particle size. The equilibrium time differed according to conditions used.

Ultrasonic Cavitation in Wastewater Treatment from Azo Dye Methyl Orange

The work is devoted to the study of reagent treatment of methyl orange mono azo dye under the action of acoustic vibrations of the ultrasonic range. The positive effect of cavitation phenomena on the rate of mineralization of azo dye (13.4% increase) was compared with the reagent treatment of the solution without ultrasonic vibrations.
