The objective of this study was to investigate the use of ionic and neutral polymeric resins to remove and recover textile dye wastes before such wastes are fed into rivers and streams. Initially, synthetic azo-dyes with various functional groups were used that would represent a broad spectrum of textile dyes. Then, various types of actual plant dyes waste, which included all the additives, were investigated. These dye wastes consisted of direct, acid, basic, vat and dispersed dyes. They were screened against various commercially available ionic and neutral resins to see which resin or resin combination would remove them most efficiently. The data obtained in this investigation indicate that all except dispersed dyes could be removed to give a colorless effluent. Therefore, considerable investigation was focused on dispersed dyes. The complete color removal of dispersed dyes was accomplished with a neutral resin column followed by a weak base column.
