    Background: Rivers and other water bodies are highly polluted by waste water released from many industries, among which dye industries play a major role. These dye effluents are very much harmful to land as well as humans. Aim: In the present investigation, plant powder of Moringa oleifera was used for reducing the color of malachite green dye which is highly harmful. Methodology: Through biosorption process and optimization of adsorbent concentration, and pH dye removal efficiency was analysed. Results: The results revealed 1g of the adsorbent dosage and pH 7was found to be the optimum level for adsorption, in which the maximum removal of color was achieved (68.75%). Conclusion: In this study, leaf powder of Moringa oleifera was found to be effective adsorbent for the removal of malachite green dye.
