Dairy sludge was investigated as potential adsorbent for the removal of hazardous cationic dyes. Biosorption was studied as a function of solution initial pH, biosorbent dose, biosorbent particle diameter and initial dye ion concentration. These parameters were measured in batch experiments. Equilibrium uptake increased with increasing dye concentration with a maximum sorption capacity of a 178.6 mg g-1. Model equations such as Langmuir and Freundlich isotherms were used to analyze the adsorption equilibrium data and the best fits to the experimental data were provided by the first isotherm model. Scanning electron microscopy and energy-dispersive X-ray (SEM-EDX), Brunauer–Emett–Teller (BET), Fourier transform infrared analyses (FTIR) and microbiological characterisation were also performed to characterize the biosorbent. To describe the adsorption mechanism, kinetic models such as pseudo-second-order and the intra particle diffusion were applied.
