The objective of this study was to model the removal efficiency of ternary adsorption system using feed-forward back propagation artificial neural network (FFBP-ANN). The ANN model was trained with Levenberg–Marquardt back propagation algorithm and the best model was found with the architecture of {9-11-4-3} neurons for the input layer, first and second hidden layers, and the output layer, respectively, based on two metrics, namely, mean squared error (MSE) = (0.2717–0.5445) and determination coefficient (R2) = (0.9997–0.9999). Results confirmed the robustness and the efficiency of the developed ANN model to model the adsorption process.
