The sorption of artificial dye effluent made from two different dyes, Solar orange 7 GLL and Solar jade Green FFB from Clariant, onto three different agricultural residues-barley husk, sugarcane bagasse, and wheat straw-was studied. Twenty percent of 600-mum particle size of these agricultural residues was used as substrates and studied individually. The percentage of dye removal was observed in concentrations of dye varying from 50 to 200 mg/L. The effect of temperature ranging from 25 to 50degreesC and pH from 6.0 to 12.0 on the dye removal by the substrates was also studied. The effective adsorption of the substrates was calculated.
