Abstract

The study deals with utilization of an agricultural by-product, risk husk for the synthesis of rice husk activated carbon and subsequent removal of organics like COD and Phenols from sewage by adsorption. The method of chemical activation is adopted for preparation of activated carbon. Characteristics of raw sewage and absorbent were analysed. The removal efficiency of the pollutants like COD and Phenols by rice husk based activated carbon (RHAC) was evaluated through batch adsorption and the effect of operating parameters like adsorbent dosage and pH of the solution on the mechanism were analysed. The optimum dosage and pH were found to be 5 gm and 6, respectively. The study showed reduction of 92.68 % and 94.55 % for COD and Phenols respectively
