  • Activated Carbon Adsorber US EPA

    2020-11-4 · In adsorption, gaseous pollutants are removed from an air stream by transferring the pollutants to the solid surface of an adsorbent. Activated carbon is the most commonly used adsorbent, although zeolites, polymers, and other adsorbents may be used. There is a limit to the mass of pollutants that can be collected by an adsorbent.

  • A Citizen's Guide to Activated Carbon Treatment US EPA

    2015-4-8 · Activated carbon is the most commonly used approach to treating groundwater in “pump and treat” systems (See A Citizen’s Guide to Pump and Treat [EPA 542-F-12-017]). It is also used to treat contaminant vapors removed from contaminated soil and groundwater by soil vapor extraction and other cleanup methods.

  • Reducing PFAS in Drinking Water with Treatment

    2018-8-23 · Activated carbon is an effective adsorbent because it is a highly porous material and provides a large surface area to which contaminants may adsorb. Activated carbon (GAC) is made from organic materials with high carbon contents such as wood, lignite, and coal; and is often used in granular form called granular activated carbon (GAC).
