Naproxen Removal Capacity Enhancement by Transforming the Activated Carbon into a Blended Composite Material

The naproxen adsorption capacity enhancement of activated carbon prepared from the Indian gooseberry seed-shells by manufacturing a composite blended with the surface-modified graphite powder and

Sustainable use of biochar for resource recovery and pharmaceutical removal from human urine: A critical review

It is revealed that biochars with different properties can be employed to separately attain nitrogen and phosphorus recovery, and removal of pharmaceuticals from source-separated urine, and in the process the nutrient-rich biochar can be applied to the agrarian fields to achieve a closed-loop fertility system.

Activated Carbon for Pharmaceutical Removal at Point-of-Entry

Pharmaceuticals are an increasing problem in waterways due to improper disposal and lack of removal at wastewater treatment plants. Long-term exposure impacts to humans are unknown but have been

Characterization Techniques as Supporting Tools for the Interpretation of Biochar Adsorption Efficiency in Water Treatment: A Critical Review

An innovative approach is taken to critically survey the methodologies that are generally used to characterize BCs and ACs to propose a comprehensive and ready-to-use database of protocols, and presents and discusses an adsorption efficiency index BC/AC.



Pharmaceutical removal in synthetic human urine using biochar

The interactions between biochar, nutrients, and pharmaceuticals suggest that biochar has the ability to remove pharmaceuticals while maintaining nutrient concentrations in solution for future use as a nutrient product.

Influence of molecular structure and adsorbent properties on sorption of organic compounds to a temperature series of wood chars.

The results show that sorption is a complex function of char properties and solute molecular structure, and not very predictable on the basis of readily determined char properties, as well as a weighted sum of microporosity and mesoporosity.

Adsorption of Fluoroquinolone Antibiotics by Wastewater Sludge Biochar: Role of the Sludge Source

Adsorption of fluoroquinolone antibiotics using sludge-derived biochar made of various wastewater sludges was investigated. The sludge-derived biochar had relatively large Brunauer–Emmet–Teller
