Abstract
The efficiency of using adsorbents to remove VOCs from potable water is discussed. The effects of variable influent concentrations, adsorption competition, natural dissolved organic matter, humic complexations, and microbial growth are evaluated. Column configurations, application methods, regeneration methods, and pretreatment options also are discussed.
