Abstract

The present paper assessed the efficiency of a natural biodegradable fenugreek powder for removal of Congo red dye from the wastewater. The flocculation and adsorption Studies have been conducted on adsorption of Congo Red (CR) a hazardous, textile dye onto Fenugreek Powder. Fenugreek Powder is Eco-friendly, biodegradable and locally available in the market. The dye adsorption process was performed in different batches at varying pH, dye concentration, adsorbent concentration and contact time to get the best results. The result revealed that the maximum removal of dye was 42.4% with 10mg/l of Fenugreek powder at pH 4.
