Dried cattle-manure compost was pyrolyzed by a one-step process to obtain activated carbon using chemical activation by zinc chloride. The influence of activation parameters such as ZnCl(2) to cattle-manure compost (ZnCl(2)/CMC) ratio, activation temperature and retention time on the final products was investigated. The resultant activated carbons were… CONTINUE READING
