Earlier studies (see PB-168 799) showed that activated carbon for waste water renovation could best be used in continuous-flow columns. Such techniques should result in ad adsorptive capacity of greater than 10 percent. Results on studies of adsorption of organics from single- and multi-component systems in fluidized carbon are reported herein. The adsorbability of organic pesticides on activated carbon was investigated in some detail. Studies were undertaken to characterize those types of organic pollutants that are not adsorbed on activated carbon. (Author)
