G.H. TOROSYAN, Ghazi AIDAN, D.N. HOVHANNISYAN

Abstract

In this paper it has been introduced phenol and furfural sorption from water solutions as more important substances for chemical synthesis and as solvent in specially for oil refining solvent and the results of research in the field of the using of natural materials – as agricultural by-products, activated carbon from them as sorbents and as promising materials for waste water treatment from phenol and furfural. The advantages of agricultural by-products in comparison with other sorbents are their low cost, availability of extraction and others. Phenol and furfural exist in significant percentage of petroleum products as solvent and refining agent. This organic compound entering in soil and groundwater system are considered such a serious problem is that all have some acute and long term toxic effects. Apricot stones based acid-activated carbon has higher sorptive activity. The sorption activity of this sorbent as well as comparable with the commercial carbon - Carbonsorb-AB.
