Abstract: There are various treatment methods for the removal of dyes from industrialeffluent. These may be broadly divided into three main categories. Physical, chemicaland biological processes. On the basis ofmolecularstructure, the aromatic complex ofthe dyes is generally resistant to light, biological activity, oxidizing agent (e.g., ozone),and other degradative environmental conditions. Thus, conventional biological treatment systems are inefficient in treating dye containing effluents. In the chemical treatment process, various advanced process such as UV, H2O2,are often used and have been proven effective in the rapid removal of dyes. However 18 such technologies usually involve some disadvantages, including complicated procedurehigh energy costs and formation of by products.Activated carbon is generally more effective for adsorption of various dyes thanadsorbents that do not require significant processing. However, commercially available activated carbon is expensive and might not be economical for wastewater treatment. Foran economical wastewater treatment purpose, therefore the development of activatedcarbon from no cost or waste materials acquired locally is an interesting newline
