    Abstract: The use of low-cost, locally available, highly efficient and eco-friendly adsorbents has been investigated as an ideal alternative to the current expensive methods of removing dyes from waste water. The aim of this work was the production of coconut shell activated carbon of Congo Red (CR) dye from aqueous solution. Batch adsorption studies were ca... Show More
