The consumption of large volumes of water and the generation of organic compounds as liquid effluents are major environmental problems in milk processing industry. A large number of chemicals are used for the production of potable water and in the treatment of wastewater effluents. Dairy industries have shown tremendous growth in size and number in most countries of the world. The adsorption process is one of the effective techniques and various natural adsorbents are widely used for removal of emerging pollutants in dairy wastewater. The use of natural adsorbents has been widely investigated as a replacement for current costly methods of removing pollutants from dairy effluent. The aim of this study is to contribute in the search for less expensive adsorbents and their utilization possibilities of various agricultural waste by-products such as sugarcane bagasse, rice husk, oil palm shell, coconut shell, coconut husk for the elimination of pollutants from wastewater. Present study deals with the effect of natural absorbent i.e. Neem on the pH of the waste water comes from the dairy industry.
