A super absorbent was synthesized from calcium–aluminum waste residue of aluminum industrial using a facile hydrothermal method. The XRD results revealed that the main phase of hydrothermal product at 120 °C is CaSO4 ·2H2O, with a small amount of Al(OH)3. The as-prepared products were used to investigate the adsorptive applications in Congo red (CR) removal, and the results showed that the products treated at 120 °C had the best adsorption properties. The maximum adsorption capacity reaches about 1860.11 mg/g with a removal rate of 99.75%. Furthermore, the used adsorbent could be regenerated for at least four cycles through a calcination procedure, indicating its potential as an excellent adsorbent for the removal of CR dye from wastewater. The adsorption behavior was analyzed by Langmuir, Freundlich and Sips isotherms, and the adsorption proved to be a multilayer adsorption. This facile method presented here may provide promise synthesis of high-effective and low-cost adsorbents from industrial solid waste and achieve the goal of “using waste to treat waste” in the future.
