Currently, management of waste and quality of water are the two important tasks of human life. However, this work is based on the use of biomass residues including dead leaves of oak trees and sea plant (Posidonia oceanica L.) for the adsorptive elimination of hazardous dye such as crystal violet (CV) and methylene blue (MB) from aqueous solution. To meet the approaches of green chemistry and sustainable environment. The biomass adsorbents were applied without previous chemical or physical treatment. Also the natural value of pH (pH 7) has been used during the whole process. The important factors which directly effect on dye removal were investigated in batch process. The optimum values of parameters were established as contact time of 60 min, 50 mg/l as the initial dye concentration, and 0.1 g as the adsorbent mass, while the values of temperature was fixed at 25oC. The characterization study of biomass was performed using Fourier Transform Infrared (FTIR) and Scanning Electron Microscope (SEM) techniques. The maximum adsorption capacity for CV and MB onto oak L. was found to be 31.65 and 33.5mg/g, and as 22.93 and 27.78 mg/g for CV and MB, respectively onto Posidonia oceanica.
