Azizan, Nur Shafieza (2007) Leachate treatment by using different charcoal as sizes of adsorption media / Nur Shafieza Azizan. [Student Project] (Unpublished)

Abstract

A study was conducted to assess removal and adsorption capacity of charcoal as adsorption media of raw leachate from Pulau Burung Landfill Site (PBLS) located in Penang, Malaysia. Under room temperature condition, removal of three parameters which are Chemical Oxygen Demand (COD), suspended solid, and color in leachate was investigated. Influence of particle size effect of charcoal in range of 150 pm to 2 mm and different pH of leachate in range of pH 2 to pH 10 were pursued. The result indicated that the maximum removal of color (17.3%) and suspended solid (42.6%) is at charcoal with size 2 mm. Charcoal with size 600 pm was suitable to remove COD (92.9%). Moreover, the most appropriate pH to remove suspended solid was pH 10 (41.3%), for COD was pH 9 (92.9%), and for color removal was pH 2 (80.4%).
