Abstract

The current study examined the removal of the organic content from the real effluent water produced by the oilfields. The suggested treatment process was the adsorption technique using the moringa husks as adsorbent agent. The effect of processing parameters such as adsorbent dosage, contact time and pH has been investigated using the batch adsorption method. The Langmuir isotherm provided a better fit for the adsorption equilibrium data than the Freundlich isotherm. It was observed that organic content adsorption was dependent on pH. The maximum removals of organic content were 65.4 % and 94.1% for moringa and activated moringa husks respectively at pH = 3, 120 min, 1.5 gm dose. The consequences of this study propose that activated moringa husks might be rummage-sale as a low-cost adsorbent for the removal of organic content from produced water aqueous solutions.
