This research considers the results of granular activated carbon (GAC) pilot-plant studies related to the adsorption of an industrial solvent and a pesticide, namely, 1,2-dichloroethane (DCE), and 1,2-dibromo-3-chloropropane (DBCP), respectively, from river water. A predictive mathematical model (Michigan Adsorption Design and Application Model-MADAM (1-4)) which has demonstrated potential for use in the design and operation of GAC for wastewater treatment, was used in simulation and prediction of the dynamic performance of fixed-bed pilot-plant adsorbers. Good agreement between the predicted breakthrough profiles and the pilot-plant verification data was observed. All column experiments exhibited biological activity.
