A STUDY INTO THE ALTERATION OF PHYSICAL AND CHEMICAL CHARACTERISTICS OF ACTIVATED CARBON SURFACE FOR PURIFYING WATERHanumant Singh Chouhan
The most common applications of activated carbon in todayâs world are process water treatment, commercial and industrial wastewater treatment, and air/odour abatement. When transformed to activated carbons, carbonaceous source materials have the potential to efficiently cleanse and eliminate a wide range of pollutants from water and wastewater streams. With over 1,000 recognized uses, activated carbonâs potential is limitless. AC may be tailored to satisfy a wide range of unique purposes, from gold mining to water purification, and food manufacturing. Non-polar adsorbents like activated carbon work well. It may be used with a range of substances to adsorb diverse qualities of wastewater due to its large specific surface area and micropore, high adsorption performance, and recycling. This research aimed to look into the influence of chemical surface features on activated carbonsâ application in water purification.
