Abstract
  • Abstract Current methods employed in the textile industry are unsustainable because they use an abundance of water in the dying process, and discharge the waste into the environment, causing adverse health effect on aquatic life and local communities. The technology that is in place to remove dye from textile effluents is very expensive and energy intensive. Therefore it is most economically beneficial for textile industries to dump the waste before treating it. This study investigated the potential use of two macro-algae, Palmaria mollis and Fucus vesiculosus, and Red Alder biochar to adsorb Acid Green 3 dye from textile effluent. Batch experiments were conducted under different temperature, pH and salinity conditions to determine the adsorption capabilities of P. mollis, F. vesiculosus and Red Alder char. F. vesiculosus proved to be the most effective sorbant, removing 60% of AG3 dye in a 10g/L dye solution over a course of 8 hours in a saline solution.
