Qualitative studies of colour removal of distillery effluent were carried out continuously in packed bed reactor to screen out the suitable combination of modified soil. The continuous reactor (voidage: 0.39-0.4, packed density: around 1) studies enable to remove colour and COD degradation of effluent (COD 22000-23000 mg/l) to the tune of 97-99% respectively for the period of more than 10 days. Formulation of modified soil, kinetic data, voidage, space velocity etc are important parameters in assessing the efficiently of the reactor performance.
