Adsorption onto activated carbon in a fixed‐bed reactor has been found to be an attractive process for removing hazardous organics from water and wastewater. Current fixed‐bed reactor design procedures can be both expensive and time‐consuming. Mathematical process modeling can reduce the cost and time by decreasing laboratory and pilot‐scale experimentation. A model will provide the most utility if it is computationally efficient, and both stable and accurate for a wide variety of system… CONTINUE READING
