Preparation and Characterization of Activated Carbon derived from olive stone as adsorbent for Congo Red

Document Type : Research Paper




Carbon activated powdered was prepared from activated carbon derived from olive stone. Then by
using the surface methodology, many parameters such as pH, furnace temperature (T), acid ratio,
time of activation that affect on the qualities prepared activated carbon produced and its efficiency
were investigated. In addition, the adsorption of Congo Red onto the activated olive stone carbon
active was studied and removal or adsorption percent as response was reported. By applying surface
methodology we obtained optimum conditions, at the other hand next researches can use these
conditions to produce activated carbon by high efficiency from Olive stone as natural adsorbent.
