Adsorption process is one of the best ways for removal of dyes from effluent generated from different industries. The use of adsorbent manufactured from sugarcane bagasse as well as bamboo fibre bundles, an agro squander from sugar and building industries have been reviewed as an excellent replacement for stimulated carbon sorbents for the removal of dyes from wastewater. Agricultural based adsorbents prepared from sugarcane bagasse and bamboo may be successfully used to remove the unused hydrolyzed dyes from an effluent of textile dyeing industry. These ready adsorbents may very much capable in decolorization of the textile effluent. In this review, literature of two sorbents has been compiled. The review assesses these agricultural based materials as low-cost adsorbents for the removal of hydrolysed dyes from textile effluent. The review also draws some of the basic mechanism of dye adsorption on to.
