Abstract

Rice husk has a very large potential to be developed in an absorbent. The aim of this study is to develop rice husk into an adsorbent for the removal of benzene and toluene from artificial wastewater. Rice husk is an abundant source of agricultural waste that can be found all overthe world. Rice huskwas treated by burning it in a furnace at certain temperature for one and three hours. Properties of the treated rice husk was examined by using characterization equipments such as Scanning Electron Microscope and Fourier Transform Infrared Resonance. The performance was found through a batch experiment where lOOppm of artificial wastewater containing benzene and toluene respectively were mix with the developed adsorbent. It was found from the experiment that the highest removal efficiency for the removal of benzene is 80% while toluene is 85%. It is concluded that this experiment was able to developed rice husk into an adsorbent for the removal of benzene and toluene from artificial wastewater.
