The paper summarizes the results of studies undertaken to determine methods of removing total organic carbon (TOC) from municipal and industrial wastewaters. The discussion focuses on the physical-chemical process of activated carbon treatment. Granular activated carbon adsorption, when used in conjunction with chemical precipitation and filtration was found to remove 95 percent or greater of TOC, BOD, chemical oxygen demand (COD), total phosphates and suspended solids, and 78 percent of total nitrogen. Examples of plant variables, data, and costs are also given.
