Pyrolysis ofpolysterene sulfonic acid-co-maleic acid salts at 800 degrees C resulted in formation of new materials consisting of porous carbon and metal species dispersed on the surface. After hydrochloric acid treatment, the metal oxides/salts were removed. Obtained materials were characterized using adsorption of nitrogen, thermogravimetric analysis,(More)
Terrene, sewage sludge derived granulated fertilizer, was impregnated with spent mineral oil and then pyrolyzed at 600, 800, and 950 degrees C. Materials obtained were characterized from the point of view of the pore structure and surface chemistry. Then the H2S breakthrough capacitywas measured using a lab designed test. The results showed that the new(More)
Adsorption of sulfur dioxide on carbonaceous materials has been extensively studied (1-18). Activated carbon and activated carbon fibers have been found to be efficient adsorbents for the low temperature removal of SO2. It is believed that sulfur dioxide is adsorbed with two adsorption energies on activated carbons (3-12). The low energy, about 50 kJ/mol,(More)
The objective of this paper is to study the effect of transition metals used in organic salts on the structural properties of carbonaceous materials. To accomplish our objectives, we carbonized commercially available poly(styrene sulfonic acid-co-maleic acid), sodium salt. To study the effect of metals, sodium was exchanged with either cobalt, nickel, or(More)
Sewage sludge-derived materials were used as adsorbents of hydrogen sulfide from moist air. The adsorbent obtained by carbonization at 950 degrees C has a capacity twice of that of coconut-shell-based activated carbon. The capacity of the sludge-derived materials increases with increasing carbonization temperature. It is likelythatduring carbonization at(More)
Sewage sludge-derived fertilizer, Terrene, was used as a precursor of adsorbents tested for removal of hydrogen sulfide from moist air. The adsorbents were obtained by pyrolysis of sulfuric acid-treated granular fertilizer at 600, 800, and 950 degrees C in a nitrogen atmosphere. The highest H(2)S removal capacity was obtained for the sample carbonized at(More)
Activated carbons of different origins were studied as methyl mercaptan adsorbents in wet, dry, and oxidizing conditions. The materials were characterized using adsorption of nitrogen, Boehm titration, and thermal analysis. Investigation was focused on the feasibility of the removal of methyl mercaptan on activated carbons and on the role of surface(More)
Sewage sludge-derived materials carbonized at temperatures between 400 and 950 degrees C were used for adsorption of sulfur dioxide from dry and moist air. The materials were characterized using sorption of nitrogen and thermal analysis. The sulfur dioxide capacity was measured according to a laboratory-developed breakthrough test. It was found that the(More)
This research focuses on activated carbons as adsorbents and catalysts for the removal of methyl mercaptan (MM) – odoriferous sulfur-containing compound commonly added to natural gas for leak detection purposes. Activated carbons are well known for their exceptional ability to adsorb some acidic gases. The application of activated carbons to remove hydrogen(More)
Various methods have been used to dispose of or utilize municipal sewage sludge (1), including incineration, landfilling, road surfacing, conversion to fertilizer, compression into building blocks, and carbonization (1-4). Since 1976 several patents have been issued on carbonization of sewage sludge and various applications of the final materials (4-7).(More)
