The article focuses on the use of orange peel for the removal of acidic dyes from industrial effluent. It states that highly colored industrial wastewater is another environmental problem as it discolors the waterways and blocks sunlight for photosynthesizing plant species in the water. Researchers from Algeria have found out that a common agricultural and food industry byproduct, the orange peel, could be used to remove acidic dyes from industrial wastewater.
