The use of adsorption and electrochemical treatment technologies for wastewater treatment has significantly increased in recent years. In the present study, carbon prepared from biomass waste can be used as electrode material in the electrochemical process is shown. Given that the electrode material is quite expensive, low-cost manufacturing is gaining more and more importance. Electroadsorption of textile dye (Burdem Orange II) by using activated carbon prepared from waste material, which is cherry stones, was investigated with the variation in the parameters of pH, initial dye concentration, solution flow rate, applied potential, and supporting electrolyte. The removal efficiency of textile dye up to 98% were achieved by electrochemical method.
