Physical Chemistry of Water Treatment Processes


The article has assessed current losses of porosity of activated carbon due to the existence of microbial activity in the fixed sorbent bed during the removal of 2-chlorophenol from water. Non-target losses of vacant porosity of carbon increased depending on the time of functioning the biological system. At the end of the second year the content of bioproducts in spent pores constituted 75–85%.
