The Use of Activated Carbon as a Polishing Step for Treatment of Industrial Plating Wastewaters
An activated carbon adsorption process was utilized as a polishing step following the precipitation (hydroxide or sulfide) process. Zinc and cadmium were the metals studied. Since plating...

Predicting Carbon Adsorption of Organics from Humid Air
Increased levels of humidity resulted in reduced adsorption capacity for trichloroethylene (TCE) at low influent concentrations on a microporous activated carbon. Water vapor also reduced...
