Preparation of Activated Carbon from low cost Precursors ab 79 EURO And its Use for the Wastewater Treatment
Europe's scientists have developed a way to convert waste fat into high-quality fuel.This offers an ideal feedstock for greasoline plants and can help boost the small businesses in the sector..The goal of the 'New technology for conversion of waste fats to high-quality fuels'Greasoline project was to convert waste fats into diesel and kerosene. The EU-funded project generated hydrocarbons from fatty acids using catalytic pyrolysis, a process for breaking down organic material using heat in the absence of oxygen. The catalyst employed was activated charcoal, which has certain advantages with regard to applicability, structure and regeneration. Research showed that poor-quality waste fats and oils contain high levels of fatty acids and are an ideal low-cost feedstock for Greasoline plants. Therefore, the technology developed by the consortium can contribute to supplies of biofuels without impinging on valuable food reserves.The collection of waste fats and operation of plants is a major business opportunity for Europe's small and medium-sized enterprises. The technology can also be exported around the globe to help reduce the extraction of fossil fuels from the natural environment.
Adsorption of heavy metal ions and synthetic dyes from aqueous solution onto adsorbents is one of the dominant treatment techniques. Activated carbon, carbon nanotubes and nanosorbents are found to be the most efficient adsorbent for the removal of heavy metal ions and dyes. In spite of the superiority exhibited, the cost of activation, synthesis and regeneration limits the application of above materials at commercial stage. Agricultural wastes and by products were found to be low cost and investigated as alternate adsorbents for the removal of heavy metal ions and dyes. Agro wastes are rich in organic contents with variety of functional groups which can cooperate binding of cations and anions. The other advantages of agricultural wastes are easily available, non-hazardous and no disposal problems. Chemical activation or modification of adsorbents exhibited increased removal efficiency and loading capacities. In view of the above reports, the present book deals with use of a low cost adsorbent such as watermelon rind in its native and pretreated form for the removal of heavy metal ions and synthetic dyes from aqueous solution.
The global diversification of textile manufacturing and exports in developing nations in Asia has had significant implications for the Indian textile sector. Since most of the textile centers have developed as small-scale clusters, pollution management and enforcement of pollution control activities is not at a satisfactory level. Hence in many places the pollution load discharged into the environment has exceeded the assimilative capacity and caused severe degradation of eco-systems and ultimately affected the livelihood of the people who depend on the services provided by these eco-systems. The effective removal of dye from industrial wastewater is a challenge to the chemical engineer, as some of the processes are not economical and others are not effective. Because many organic dyes are harmful to human beings, the removal of color from dye house effluents becomes environmentally important. In view of the above facts, an attempt is made to prepare low - cost and eco friendly adsorbents such as activated carbon and polymer coated saw dust of Thevetia Peruviana and employ them for the removal of acidic, basic, reactive and direct dyes from aqueous solution.
Activated carbons are unique and versatile adsorbents because of their extended interparticulate large surface area, microporous structure, high adsorption capacity and high degree of surface reactivity. Depending on the functional group and ions present on the surface of the activated carbon, its adsorption quality varies. However, high cost and non-renewable source of commercially available Activated Carbons limits its use as an adsorbent. This has led to the search for low cost feedstock as raw materials for the synthesis of activated carbons. Activated carbons prepared from locally available biowaste such as the stem and leaves of common bamboo and common Buckwheat have been successfully demonstrated for the removal of lead and Manganese ions from water.
