Abstract:This study consists of evaluating the biosorption on a local material, palm stems from the Laghouat region. In order to optimize this process, several parameters such as: pH, contact time, initial dye concentration and ionic strength were also studied. Monitoring of the kinetics of direct absorption of methyl orange by palm stems and the isothermal study.

The results of the batch biosorption tests confirmed the ability of this material to adsorb the studied dye with an equilibrium time of 120 min at pH 4. The modeling shows that the biosorption of the elements considered takes place in a monolayer according to the Langmuir isotherm with a maximum adsorption quantity of methyl orange is estimated at 8.67 mg/g under the optimal conditions obtained.
