In 21st century the world is facing the critical issue of waste water management, textile industry are the top most red industries in the world. Industrial processes create a variety of wastewater pollutants, highly turbid which are difficult and expensive to treat. In this paper (basic dye) camel ink is treated by using electro-coagulation process. Experiment is carried out by using batch mode reactor in a laboratory using aluminum electrodes. UV Spectrophotometer is used to carry absorbance. Experiment is carried out by using aeration with electro coagulation. The study focus on effect of electrolysis duration, current density, and spacing between electrodes. Maximum color removal efficiency was found to be 74.92 % with 16 volts and 180 minutes by using aeration and plain electro coagulation. Maximum color removal efficiency was found to be 86.47 % with 08 volts and 150 minutes by using aeration, electro coagulation and sodium chloride dose.
