The paper presents the results of research devoted to obtaining the low-cost activated carbon fibres from waste flax and jute cloth by carbonisation in inert atmosphere and activation with air as well as to the analysis of the microporous structure of materials obtained on the basis of the nitrogen, argon and benzene adsorption isotherms, using among others, the unique LBET method with implemented of the new models of the multilayer adsorption on the heterogeneous surfaces of the carbonaceous adsorbents. As part of the research conducted, imaging of the surface of the low-cost activated carbon fibres obtained has also been done using scanning electron microscopy.
