Experiments were carried out to treat synthetic Bismarck Brown dye effluent using electro coagulation covering a wide range in operating conditions. The influence of operating parameters on efficiency of the process has been critically examined. The batch experimental results showed that the dye effluent can be effectively treated using electro coagulation. The overall COD removal efficiencies has been obtained 99%, under optimum operating condition. Further it is attempted to fit the experimental data with popular adsorption isotherms Langmuir and Temkin models. The predictions of Langmuir adsorption isotherm model are in good agreement with the experimental data.
