Modeling and Optimization of Adsorption of Heavy Metal Ions onto Local Activated Carbon

Abbas Sabah Thajeel

Abstract


In this study, a mathematical model was constructed according toCentral Composite Design method (CCD), which simulated the experimental work for adsorption of (Cu2+, Fe3+, Pb2+ and Zn2+) in batch adsorption processes, where this model was studied the different effects of operational conditions and their impact on the efficiency of adsorption by using activated carbon produced from rice husk as local raw material which is low cost and available in huge quantities,and find a final form simulates practical experiences. Finally a mathematical model has been used as a software program (minitab16).
