Because of the tremendous interest in the organic constituent removal by activated carbon, the two industrial categories displaying the most interest are the petroleum refining and petrochemical industries. EPA's Office of Research and Development has co-sponsored two technical symposia for the petroleum refining/petrochemical industries, and activated carbon treatment as an important section of both agendas. The technical papers presented research activities conducted by consultants, industries, and EPA. The presentations made at these symposia have been arranged into the following sequence: (1) State-of-the-Art, (2) Organic Compound Removal, (3) Granular Pilot-Scale Studies, (4) Powdered Activated Carbon Pilot-Scale Studies, (5) Full-Scale Granular Activated Carbon Treatment (6) Full-Scale Powdered Activated Carbon Treatment, and (7) Activated Carbon Regeneration. Economics of Activated Carbon Treatment are presented in the applicable individual technical papers and is not a separate topic for this report.
