Nowadays, most of the wastewater produced as industrial effluent contain constituents where it needs to be treated prior discharge to environment. One of the constituents is phenol; an organic compound with the chemical formula C6H50H which is generated in many of the steel industry's coking facilities as a precursor to many materials and useful compounds. Phenol can pose a severe health hazard whereupon it can affect the central nervous system and cause damage to the liver and kidneys. Phenol will stay in the air, soil, and water for much longer times if a large amount of it is released at one time, or if a steady amount is released over a long time. In advanced wastewater treatment, many methods have been applied such as adsorption using activated carbon, ion exchange using resin, using Fenton reagent and UV light degradation to remove phenol. So, in this systematic study, two methods have been chosen to be investigated for phenol removal efficiency, which is adsorption using activated carbon and ion exchange resin. A modification process is performed to modify the smface of activated chemically using KOH. The adsorptive capacity between modified activated carbon, non modified activated carbon and resin then is compared to determine which is better for phenol removal. From this study, it is proven that the modification on the surface of activated carbon improves the performance for phenol removal compared to non-modified and resm.
