Paper Title:
Rice Husk Active Carbon as a Potential Low-Cost Adsorbent for TNT Wastewater
  Abstract

In this paper, the adsorption properties of TNT on Rice husk active carbon (RHAC) were investigated. The effects of contact time was examined. Kinetic data obtained at different concentrations were conducted using Lagergren’s pseudo first-order, pseudo second-order and diffusion models. The regression results showed that the adsorption kinetics was more accurately represented by pseudo second-order model. The study indicates that there is significant potential for RHAC as an adsorbent material for TNT removal from wastewater.
