Application of modified red mud for adsorption of Acid Orang 7 (AO7) dye from aqueous solution: Isotherms, Kinetics studies Abstract: Backgroud: Existence of color is one of the problems of industrial effluent such as textile industries. The dyes can be removed by various methods. Therefore, the aim of this study is evaluation of adsorption rate of acid orange (AO7) from aqueous solution by activated red mud. Material and method: This is an empirical lab study. Red mud was used as an absorbent to remove of acid orange 7 dye. The effect of various parameters on performance of absorbent was investigated and the isotherms and kinetics of adsorption was determined. The dye concentration was measured in wavelength of 452 nm by spectrophotometer. Results: The results showed that red mud surface area is 30 m2/g. The results showed that dye removal was highest at a solution pH 3 and a powder dose of 12 g/L. The AO7 removal percentage decreased from %98 to %55 at 60 min contact time when the concentration of dye was increased from 10 mg/L to 100 mg/L. The equilibrium data is best fitted on Langmuir isotherm and the adsorption kinetic model follows pseudo-second model. conclusion: The results of this study showed that red mud is able to adsorption of dye and can be used as effective and inexpensive absorbent to treat of textile effluent.
