Abstract
A NOVEL PROCESS FOR FIXED-BED ADSORPTION USING ACTIVATED CARBON AND SOLVENT REGENERATION IS PROPOSED FOR INVESTIGATION. THE PROCESS OFFERS EASIER AND LESS COSTLY SOLVENT REGNERATION, REDUCED ADSORBER BED-LENGTH REQUIREMENTS, REDUCED CONCENTRATIONS OF ADSORBED WATER, AND LOWER PROCESS ENERGY REQUIREMENT AND CAPITAL AND OPERATING COSTS. THE PROCESS WILL HAVE APPLICATION TO THE RECOVERY OF SPECIFIC IMPURITIES SUCH AS PHENOL FROM WASTEWATER AND HAS THE POTENTIAL TO BROADEN SIGNIFICANTLY THE RANGE OF APPLICATION OF ACTIVATED CARBON ADSORPTION WITH SOLVENT REGENERATION TO THE GENERAL TREATMENT OF WASTEWATER AND GROUNDWATERS.
