Abstract

Grey water from commercial laundry facility was used for treatment to substitute the conventional water sources. Algibon, A800 derived from mesoporous alginic acid and Starbon S300, carbonaceous mesoporous polysaccharide-derived materials, silica gel (SG) and activated carbon (AC) were used for the treatment of wastewater. The optimum adsorbent dosing and pH value for each adsorption system are defined. The adsorption efficiency are in the order of A800 > SG > AC > S300 and the removal rate reached to 91% when A800 was used. Furthermore, the reaction followed the second-order kinetic model and the rate constant is high when A800 adsorbent is applied.
