Abstract

Water contaminated by phenol is becoming a major problem in water supplies as these organic compounds cause hazards for human health and environment. Different types of columns have been used for water cleanup of organic pollutants from wastewater. Many studies report that adsorption using contacting devices are a very efficient method for phenol removal from contaminated water. This paper reviews recent research in the packed bed and fluidised bed columns used for the adsorption and biodegradation of phenol, along with emphasis on their configuration and design, mechanism of operation and the future research and development requirements.
