CARBONATION OF OLIVE SEED SHELLS USING A STRONG BASE AND A STUDY OF CARBONATION PRODUCTS AND THEIR EFFECT ON THE SPECIFICATIONS OF PREPARED CARBON

Due to the large presence of plant waste of all kinds, In order to reduce them, activated carbon is prepared as a low-cost adsorbent with many uses in removing various environmental pollutants, including gases, vapors, and water-contaminating dyes, in addition to its medical uses. These wastes include olive seeds that are obtained after extracting olive oil from olive fruits. In our study, activated carbon was prepared from olive seeds, It was ground well into a very fine powder so that the interaction with the carbonated substance (potassium hydroxide) was as large as possible and thus increased the carbon content of the raw material, To obtain good results when compared with commercial activated carbon, The physical properties of the prepared activated carbon were determined, such as internal and external surface area, density, moisture content, and ash content.

Keywords: Carbonation, Olive Seed Peels, Activated Carbon, Internal Surface Area, External Surface Area, Moisture Content, Ash Content, Density.
