Abstract

In this work, activated carbon (AC) web was prepared by using waste acrylic fibers followed by physical activation under the layer of charcoal in high temperature furnace. The carbonization of acrylic fibrous waste was performed at different temperature (800, 1000 and 1200 ◦C) with heating rate of 300 ◦Chr-1 and at different holding time. At 1200 ◦C the heating rate of 300 ◦Chr-1 with no holding time provided better results of surface area as compared to carbonization at 800 ◦C and 1000 ◦C. The AC web prepared at 1200 ◦C was used for removal of Acid Red 27 dye from aqueous media by varying different parameters like initial concentration of dye, stirring speed, adsorbent dosageand at different levels of pH.
