Title

In situ regeneration of granular activated carbon (GAC) for natural organic matter (NOM) removal

Abstract

"Sequentially-loaded and regenerated granular activated carbon (GAC) was studied to determine the efficiency of regenerative materials to restore the adsorption capacity. GAC was loaded with the Bray pond water containing natural organic matter (NOM) using rapid small scale column test (RSSCT) column. The exhausted carbon was NOM was then regenerated with different regenerants, and regenerated carbon was again reloaded with Bray pond water. The regeneration process was done in situ. Eight regenerants were used for this purpose and they were compared based on their regeneration efficiency. The most effective regenerant observed was acetic acid"--Abstract, leaf iii.
