Paper Title:
Reduction of COD from Micro-Polluted Water through Adsorption of Activated Carbon-Attapulgite Composite Adsorbent
  Abstract

The aim of this study was the assessment of reduction of chemical oxygen demand (COD) from micro-polluted water using activated carbon-attapulgite composite adsorbent prepared using activated carbon and natural attapulgite through compounding, granulation and calcination. The complete study was done in batch mode to investigate the effect of operating parameters. Adsorption of COD was found to be dependent on contact time, pH, temperature and initial COD concentration. Adsorption equilibrium attained within 80 minutes time. The optimum pH range for adsorption of organics was found to be 8. The sorption of organics decreased with rise of temperature because adsorption process was exothermic. The studied adsorption data fitted well to Langmuir adsorption model with the correlation coefficient 0.9947. The activated carbon-attapulgite composite adsorbent in this study shows very good promise for practical applicability on removal of COD from micro-polluted water.
