Surface waters in the Russian Federation are being polluted by petroleum products, phenols, metals, and easily oxidized organic compounds. The fuel and energy complex (FEC) is a major contributor to the pollution problem. The coal industry within the FEC is a major contributor to the release of effluents. This paper describes the production of carbon adsorbents from lignite for effluent treatment.
