The Palm Nut Shell Carbon (PNSC) and Treated Flyash Residue (TFR) has prepared by sulphuric acid process and characterized.The characterization studies includes determination of moisture, bulk density, pH, carbon soluble in water and acid, decolourising power, iron content, phenol number and surface area parameters.The characteristics of these carbons were compared with that of high cost activated charcoal carbon (ACC).The PNSC and TFR were used for adsorption of colouring matter from the textile dyeing industrial effluents.
