Effect of Green Synthesis Clay Nano Composite Material on Reactive Dye of Methyl Orange
Textile is a leading industry of every country because of necessity of clothes and a textile industry plays a vital role in the industrial sectors and it consume lots of water for their usage as well as they dispose equal amount of wastewater with toxic dye contents. When textile wastewater is disposed to natural system, it creates major impacts to human as well as natural environment such as human related diseases, pollution of natural system etc., So, it is necessary to treat them effectively for the purpose of protection of Environmental condition and also to save humans and animal life. The Ocimum Tenuiflorum (Tulsi) leaves extract arbitrated green synthesis of silver coated nanoparticles (AgNPs) was used as an adsorbent for dye removal. The Silver Nano particles (AgNP) is characterised by the Particle Size Analyser. The adsorbent material is added to the dye solution at different proportions and shaked well in a conical flask shaker at different rpm. A centrifuge shaker is used to settle down the floating materials. The sample is then tested for spectrophotometer to find the absorption value and removal efficiency. These nanocomposite were found to possess moderate removal efficiency in comparison with soil as an adsorbent in the removal of reactive dye. Furthermore, using these Silver nanocomposites as an adsorbent helped in achieving about 51% removal of the methyl orange reactive dye from the effluent solution.
