Abstract: Bagasee flyash, a waste generated in sugar industry from bagasse fired boilers, was found to be a good adsorbent for o-Cresol in aqueous solutions. Batch studies indicated that the percent removal decreased with increasing initial concentration of O- Cresol. At the initial concentraion of 100 mg dm-3, 81 percent removal of o-Cresol was obtained. Adsorption confirmed to both Freundlich and Langmuir isotherms. Kinetic modelling of the removal of o-Cresol was obtained. Adsorption confirmed to both Freundlich and Langmuir isotherms, kinetic modelling of the removal of o-Cresol was done using Lagergren first order rate expression. Column experiments indicated that the adsorbed amount of o-Cresol decreased with increasing flow rate and decreased bed height. The BDST model was found applicable.
