She has published extensively on the nitrification, denitrification, biological and advanced treatment of industrial wastewaters, adsorption of pollutants from water and wastewater, as well as on the biodegradation of hazardous pollutants, and the impact of heavy metals and organochlorine compounds on activated sludge and biofilm systems.5/5(1).   She has published extensively on the nitrification, denitrification, biological and advanced treatment of industrial wastewaters, adsorption of pollutants from water and wastewater, as well as on the biodegradation of hazardous pollutants, and the impact of heavy metals and organochlorine compounds on activated sludge and biofilm s: 1. Activated Carbon for Water and Wastewater Treatment: Integration of Adsorption and Biological Treatment Ferhan Çeçen, Özgür Aktaş This monograph provides comprehensive coverage of technologies which integrate adsorption and biological processes in water and wastewater treatment. Granular Activated Carbon (GAC) for Wastewater Treatment In all these processes the wastewater is contacted with granular activated carbon (GAC) typically in a semi-batch or continuous operation. Processes that utilize this type of carbon include: • Fixed-bed or expanded-bed adsorption • Moving-bed adsorption • Fluidized-bed adsorption.

Activated carbon filtration is a commonly used technology based on the adsorption of contaminants onto the surface of a filter. This method is effective in removing certain organics (such as unwanted taste and odours, micropollutants), chlorine, fluorine or radon from drinking water or wastewater. However, it is not effective for microbial contaminants, metals, nitrates . Activated carbon is an effective adsorbent because it is a highly porous material and provides a large surface area to which contaminants may adsorb. The two main types of activated carbon used in water treatment applications are granular activated carbon (GAC) and powdered activated carbon (PAC). Features & Benefits: The adsorptive capacity of granular activated carbon (GAC) makes it ideal for removing a variety of contaminants from water, air, liquids and gases. GAC is also an environmentally responsible product that can be reactivated through thermal oxidation and used multiple times for the same application. CHAPTER 3. ACTIVATED CARBON COLUMNS PLANT DESIGN Some important ideas and typical design parameters ¾ Usually, full scaled granular activated carbon beds are from to 10 meters in depth and from to meters in diameter. In a laboratory the diameter of the columns can be scaled down to 50File Size: KB.

INTEGRATION OF ACTIVATED CARBON ADSORPTION AND BIOLOGICAL PROCESSES IN WASTEWATER TREATMENT. Secondary and Tertiary Treatment: Progression from Separated Biological Removal and Adsorption to Integrated . You can write a book review and share your experiences. Other readers will always be interested in your opinion of the books you've read. Whether you've loved the book or not, if you give your honest and detailed thoughts then people will find new books that are right for them. Industrial and municipal waste water can contain many impurities, The use of granular activated carbon in fixed bed filters also gives the ganic load is the combination of biological treatment with subsequent ultrafiltration and activated carbon adsorption.
