    Ecarb - Effluent Treatment

    Activated carbon finds wide application in the treatment of wastewaters generated from industries such as food, textile, chemical, pharmaceutical, pesticides and herbicides production, coke plant, munitions factories, petroleum refineries and storage installations, organic pigments and dyes, mineral processing plants, insecticides, pesticides, resins, detergents, explosives, and dyestuffs. It is also employed in the treatment of sanitary and hazardous landfill leachates.

    Another alternative is to use activated carbon adsorption prior to biological treatment to remove compounds which might be toxic to a biological system. In industrial wastewater treatment, activated carbon adsorption can be utilized as a separate unit process. It may be placed after various physicochemical treatment steps such as coagulation/clarification, filtration, and dissolved air flotation.
