In recent years, the industrial dye wastewater causes major pollution in environment. As the waste-water discharged into the water bodies, it produces major issues to the society and responsible for water-borne deceases. Therefore, it is necessary to reduce the pollutant content before discharging the textile dye effluent. The objective of the study is to remove the pollutant, color from industrial dye effluent with cost effective adsorbent, sugarcane bagasse. In order to know the favorable condition/parameters for color removal, effects of adsorbent dosage, pH and particle size of adsorbent on dye decolorisation were investigated. The decrease in color intensity of industrial dye effluent was examined by UV-vis spectrophotometer.
