In this work, the feasibility of using agricultural waste of sorghum (AWS) in the removal of methylene blue (MB) colorant was evaluated. The experiments were carried out using fixed-bed column in a continuous system and the breakthrough curves were adjusted to the mathematical models of Adams and Bohart, Yoon and Nelson, Thomas and Doses-Response by programming them in the MATLAB R2007a software. With the realization of this study, the high biosorbent adsorption capacity has been demonstrated, as well as the high operating efficiency in column filled with AWS in the elimination of methylene blue colorant.
