Abstract
The uses of ecofriendly and low cost adsorbents were studied as an alternative substitution for removal of Chromium (VI) from wastewater. Laboratory investigation was done to identify the effectiveness of Tectona-Grandies leaves. All the experiments were carried out in batch process with effluents collected from industry. The adsorbent, which had highest chromium (VI) removal, was TGLP. An influence of chromium concentration, contact time, pH, Practical Size, Adsorbent dosages, on removal of chromium from effluent was investigated. The adsorption data were fitted well by Langmuir and Freundlich Adsorption isotherm. The results indicated that TGLP can be used for the removal of chromium.
