The present work is aimed to study the removal of Acid Vliolet dye from aqueous solution and also from textile effluent by adsorption technique using a low cost, ecofriendly bio waste, Blue-Green Algae. The structural and morphological features of BGA are characterized by SEM analysis. Physico-chemical characteristics and adsorption efficiency of BGA of the wastewater are also being determined. Batch mode adsorption studies were carried out to study the feasibility of the removal of dye using Blue Green Algae by varying the initial concentration of the dye solution. The percentage removal of dye onto Blue Green Algae by the comparison with Commercial Activated Carbon on the application of industrial wastewater containing dyes was evaluated. The results revealed that BGA, as a potential adsorbent for the adsorption of Acid Violet dye in textile effluents onto BGA.
