The preparation of activated carbon from palm oil shell by activation with microwave energy was divided into three steps: carbonization, sulfur dioxide adsorption, and microwave activation. The first step carbonization was carried out at 400C for 60 min. The characteristics of char were: yield 31.72%, volatile matter 18.87+0.06%, fixed carbon 69.41+ 0.09… CONTINUE READING
