Removal of anions, heavy metals, organics and dyes from water by adsorption onto a new activated carbon from jatropha husk, an agro-industrial solid waste



Removal of anions, heavy metals, organics and dyes from water by adsorption onto a new activated carbon from jatropha husk, an agro-industrial solid waste



Process Safety and Environmental Protection 85(2): 181-184



Jatropha curcas is a multipurpose non-edible oil yielding perennial shrub and it is a drought tolerant plant. Its seeds are used to produce bio-diesel. Jatropha husk, an agricultural solid waste, generated from bio-diesel industries, was used as a starting material to produce activated carbon. Using jatropha husk activated carbon (JHC), the feasibility of removal of toxic anions, dyes, heavy metals and organic compounds from water was investigated.
