Removal of reactive dye from aqueous solutions by adsorption onto activated carbons prepared from sugarcane bagasse pith
Bagasse pith, which is the main waste from sugarcane industry in Egypt, has been used as a raw material for the preparation of different activated carbons. Activated carbons were prepared from bagasse pith by chemical activation with 28% H3PO4 (AC1), 50% ZnCl2 (AC2) followed by pyrolysis a ...
