Abstract Almond shells, by-products from the northern region of Portugal, were used for the adsorption of pentachlorophenol (PCP) from aqueous solutions. The use of almond shells, as agricultural waste products, may present several economical advantages, considering that 50% (in mass) of almonds are constituted by shells. No research has been conducted concerning their use as sorbent without previous activation treatment. Besides performing column adsorption experiments, this study also focus… CONTINUE READING
