Abstract

Activated carbon is acknowledged as an efficient adsorbent to be used in both gas and liquid phase applications. In this study, a variety of carbonaceous-containing agricultural wastes are exploited as precursors for the activated carbon production. The renewability properties and wide availability of these resources in Malaysia makes the agricultural wastes as the most promising materials to be utilized. The objectives ofthis research study are to evaluate the physicochemical properties ofthe synthesized activated carbons and their ability to capture carbon dioxide (CO2). The production of activated carbon under one-step CO2 activation process and absence of any chemicals is advantageous as it consumes less energy and operating time, in addition to high carbon yield i.e. 26-41 wt%.
