Removal of Iron (II) from Wastewater by Locally Prepared of Activated Carbon


The use of low-cost activated carbon derived from reed, an agricultured waste material,has been investigated for the removed of Fe (II) from wastewater, using batch method. Theinfluences of the weight of adsorbent (0.2-2) g, pH of solution (1-9) and initial Fe(II)concentration (10-80) mg/l have been studied. The suitability of the activated carbon usedwas tested by fitting the adsorption data with Langmuir and Freundlich isotherms. Thestudy showed that the adsorption data obtained are obey the Freundlich isotherm fitting.
