Removal of NI (II) Ion using Low Cost Carbonaceous Sorption – A Descriptive Study

Water contamination has been a major issue in recent decades as a result of heavy metal ions prevalent in water bodies. Nickel (II) is widely found in industrial effluent from many forms of heavy metal. In our environment, NI (II) has a number of negative consequences. It endangers not just the ecology but also humans.…

Studies on Colour Removal from Dye Aqueous Solution Using Modified Forms of Adsorbent Materials

The ability of activated carbon (CSAC) and polypyrrole coated sawdust (PPy/SD) obtained from the fruit of Cordia sebestena’s gardening plant material to adsorb acid orange -7 from aqueous solutions was examined. The adsorption method is a viable treatment option, particularly if the adsorbent is affordable and easily available. Variations in experimental parameters such as pH,…

Study Investigation on Pyrolysis of Shivee Ovoo Coal from Mongolia

Our current Shivee Ovoo coal research aimed to characterise the initial coal as well as its hard and liquid components after pyrolysis. For starters, proximal and ultimate studies of Shivee Ovoo coal revealed that it is an oxidised brown lignite coal with the B2 mark. The thermal degradation process of Shivee Ovoo coal was investigated…

Research on Sustainable Conversion of Agriculture and Food Waste into Activated Carbons Devoted to Fluoride Removal from Drinking Water in Senegal

The aim of this research was to look into the development of activated carbons (AC) from cashew shells and millet stalks, as well as their fluoride retention ability. Senegalese agricultural residues were collected. It is well known that certain Senegalese areas, known as the groundnut basin, suffer from a public health issue caused by an…

Studies on the Adsorption Efficiency of Activated Carbon for Pesticide Vapour: Brief Overview

Chlorpyrifos pesticides are endocrine disruptors, inhibitors of acetyl cholinesterase, used to control pests and prime contributors to indoor pollution in retail stores. Seven selected locally sourced adsorbents; Bone charcoal (BCA), corncobs, cotton seed, kokoli, sawdust, coconut shell (CSA) and Muruchi were evaluated. Only BCA and CSA shows peaks and were further examined at adsorptive temperatures…

CO2 Capture Using Amine-impregnated Activated Carbon from Jatropha curcas Shell

A micro porous activated carbon (JAC) was synthesis from Jatropha curcas shell an agricultural waste by chemical activation using KOH. The JAC was modified with triethanolamine (TEA) to produce (JAC-TEA). The performance of both adsorbents in CO2 capture study was evaluated in a cylindrical glass column equipped with a digital mass balance. The effect of…
