In this study, bark of Casuarina equisettifolia activated carbon and water hyacinth were used as a low cost adsorbent and biosorbent to investigate the removal of Chemical Oxygen Demand (COD) from aqueous solution. The experiments mainly focused on the effect of Casuarina equisettifolia activated carbon and water hyacinth dosage on removal efficiency of COD. The synthetic solution prepared with initial COD concentration of 600 ppm is subjected to batch study with 10 gm of low cost absorbent on
