Abstract
A novel activation process was adopted to produce highly porous activated carbon from activated sludge obtained from a common industrial wastewater treatment plant. The activated carbon was successfully used for COD removal from industrial wastewater. The physical properties of activated carbon produced by the activation of 1M Na2CO3 solution was investigated. COD removal from aqueous solution by adsorption onto the sludge-based activated carbon was studied under varying conditions of adsorption time and carbon dosage. The Freundlich equilibrium isotherm model fitted the adsorption data well with R2 = 0.8593. Accordingly, it is concluded that the procedure of developing activated carbon used in this study could be effective and practical for utilizing in COD wastewater treatment.
