Reduction of Chemical Oxygen Demand (COD) in petroleum refinery effluent wastewater by adsorption onto activated carbon was demonstrated on a commercial level during a two-year project at Carson, California. The plant contained over 750,000 pounds of carbon, regenerated 1,644,000 pounds of carbon, processed 172 million gallons of water, and removed 408,000 pounds of COD. The carbon was exhausted at the rate of 9.5 pounds per 1000 gallons of water processed. At an average feed COD concentration of 250 ppm and an average effluent COD concentration of 50 ppm, the carbon was loaded to an average of 0.26 pounds of COD per pound of carbon. Following solution of initial startup problems, the unit was operated at a cost of 40 cents per 1000 gallons of water treated, or 18 cents per pound of COD removed.
