Abstract

The development of non-particulate decontamination and cleaning technologies is of defense and industrial interest. Activated carbon is a known sorbent because of its high porosity and surface area. In typical industrial and defense applications such as decontamination of toxic sites and clean-ups, granulated sorbent carbons are used. Granules of sorbent carbon leave dirty particles and add additional contamination problems which inhibit the use of sorbent carbon in particulate or loose form.
