Kinjal Sanjay Khaire,  Prof. Sachin J. Mane,  Dr. Ashok More
In this research, possibility of using chitosan which is biopolymer can be derived from chitin found abundantly in the exoskeleton of crustaceans such as prawns, shrimps, lobsters and crabs to remove color from printing ink containing waste water has been studied. Chitosan offers an interesting set of characteristics including non-toxicity, biodegradability and biocompatibility. Waste water of printing ink contains high color, suspended solids, and dissolved organic pollutants. Adsorption process of printing ink containing waste water onto chitosan was investigated in batch system. The effect of solution PH, adsorbent dosage, and contact time was studied. In the research, optimum dose of chitosan were the maximum color removal and turbidity removal is obtain is found out. Result shows that adsorption process carried out using chitosan considered as an effective and economical method to remove color, turbidity from printing ink containing waste water.
