Abstract—Nowadays, sorption is one of the fastest growing techniques for the treatment of wastewaters, due to availability of large variety of biomaterials. A lot of experimentation has been done for finding effective biomaterials. The mechanism and effectiveness of sorption is done by comparative study of experimentation results and theoretical models. A computer tool SORPS (SORption Process Simulation) is developed by using MATLAB 7.11. This tool divides sorption process in two categories i.e. batch and column studies. In batch kinetic, intraparticle diffusion, isotherm (equilibrium), thermodynamics and energy studies can be performed and in column, breakthrough curve of sorbent can be determined. More than sixty comparative studies can be performed for variable operational variables. Its interface is user friendly and with self-explanatory steps. It also has flexibility to perform comparison between experimental results and theoretical models; and it is helpful in saving time and cost. Thus, SORPS is preferred over other sorption study tools and it has potential to become a useful tool for industry.
