Abstract: Adsorption capacity of three different adsorbents (activated charcoal, fly ash and wood ash) has been tested and compared for the removal of various pollutants and heavy metals from distillery-spent wash. Adsorption was brought about at polyhouse conditions and the changes in pH, colour, COD, TS, TDS, TSS, Ca, Mg, Na, K and heavy metals (Cu, Zn, Fe) of distillery effluent using various adsorbents has been examined. Activated charcoal was found to be best adsorbent followed by fly ash and wood ash.
