Dye Removal from Wastewater

Authors(1) :-M. Mangaleswaran

Wastewater treatment is a process used to convert wastewater into an effluent that can be either returned to the water cycle with minimal environmental issues or reused. Treatment means removing impurities from water being treated; and some methods of treatment are applicable to both water and wastewater. The physical infrastructure used for wastewater treatment is called a wastewater treatment plant. Dyes are widely used in industries such as textiles and others, to color their products. As a result, they generate a considerable amount of colored wastewater.
