This is because some of the characteristics that are important for other forms of carbon adsorbents such as high density , hardness and abrasion index are irrelevant in the case of PAC. In addition, PAC must be discarded after use and cannot be reused. This implies that the cost of producing PAC must be kept to a minimum. At present, investment in R&D for the development of better PAC adsorbents is negligible, most of the industrial research focuses on the GAC and the special forms of carbon adsorbents.
Menendez-Diaz Menéndez-Díaz and I. Martín-Gullón microporous materials. It must be noted that contrary to what occurred in the case of steam activation (Fig. 11), the isotherm knees are less open (for all the samples) than those shown in Fig. 11, and they separate from the Y axis at different heights. 3,4. Carbon dioxide vs. steam activation Although industries have always used steam instead of carbon dioxide to produce activated carbons by thermal activation, there has been constant disagreement about which oxidizing agent performs better.
19 shows the adsorption capacity attained with other precursors such as a bituminous and a subbituminous coal, vs. the heat treatment temperature and compared with wood . It is clear that phosphoric acid activation must only be applied to lignocellulosic materials since the coals hardly develop any porosity. 2000 1400 1800 White Oak BET Surface Area (m2/g) Subbituminous Coal Subbituminous 1200 1600 Bituminous Coal Bituminous 1000 1400 1200 1000 800 600 400 - 200 0 0 100 100 200 300 400 500 600 700 HHT (°C) HHT(°C) Fig.
