Biochar was evaluated as a precursor of activated carbon. This product was produced by chemical activation using potassium hydroxide. The effects of operating conditions of activation process, such as temperature, activating agent to biochar mass ratio, and nitrogen flow rate, on the textural and chemical properties of the product were investigated. Activated carbon produced by this method has internal surface area at least 50 times than that of the precursor and is highly microporous, which is… CONTINUE READING
