Abstract

Red algae species, Euchema Spinosum (ES) in Malaysia possesses excellent biosorbent properties in removing dyes from aqueous solutions. In the present study, the experimental design for the biosorption process was carried out via response surface methodology (RSMCCD). A total of 20 runs were carried out to generate a quadratic model and further analysed for optimisation. Prior to the evaluation, the characterisation study of the ES was performed. It was observed that the maximum uptake capacity of 399 mg/g (>95%) is obtained at equilibrium time of 60 min, pH solution of 6.9-7.1, dosage of 0.72 g/L and initial dye concentration of 300 g/L through statistical optimisation (CCD-RSM) based on the desirability function. It is demonstrated in the present study that the ANN model (R2=0.9994, adjR2=0.9916, MSE=0.19, RMSE=0.4391, MAPE=0.087 and AARE=0.001) is able to provide a slightly better prediction in comparison to the RSM model (R2= 0.9992, adj-R2= 0.9841, MSE=1.95, RMSE=1.395, MAPE=0.08 and AARE=0.001). Moreover, the SEM-EDX analysis indicates the development of a considerable number of pore size ranging between 132 to 175 m. From the experimental observations, it is evident that the ES can achieve high removal rate (>95%), indeed become a promising eco-friendly biosorptive material for MB dye removal.
