STUDY ON PHENOL-SORPTION OF TWO HOMOGENIZED INDUSTRIAL-WASTEWATER-BLEND USNQ ACTIVATED CARBONV. Srihari and Ashutosh Das
Phenol-rich wastewater poses serious health hazard, and is mainly treated by adsorption using activated carbon. This paper aims at exploring the possibility of improvement in treatment of different industrial wastewaters of similar physical characteristics using additional reagents thereby making them chemically comparable and compatible for simultaneous treatment.The study consists of use of steel and pharmaceutical industry wastewater for adsorption of phenol using activated carbon (AC). Subsequently the samples were homogenized (with respect to phenol concentration and pH) to get compatible and improved adsorption. An endeavour was also made for phenol adsorption of the homogenized-wastewater-blend.
