Critical discussion on activated carbons from bio-wastes - environmental risk assessment

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

The use of bio-wastes as precursor materials to prepare porous activated carbons have gained much attention in recent years, mainly due to their abundancy and low cost. Particularly, it has been registered an increasing interest in these waste-derived materials for environmental applications, particularly as adsorbents for water treatment. Activated carbons may retain the mineral matter initially present in the precursors as well as the chemical agents used in the activation process; therefore, it is important to assess the potential environmental impact associated to their use, in order to avoid problems related with secondary environmental pollution. This review intends to give an insight and provide discussion about the environmental risk assessment of activated carbons derived from bio-wastes.
