Abstract Activated carbons were produced from fluid petroleum coke using physical (steam and CO 2 ) and chemical (KOH and H 3 PO 4 ) activations. Effects of process parameters including activation temperature, activation time period and water flow rate on yield and BET surface area of steam-activated carbons were investigated and optimized. Steam activation improved BET surface area of the precursor more than 40 times at optimum operating conditions and KOH activation increased BET surface area… CONTINUE READING
