Study and developmnent of activation processes of intermediate carbonaceous products in laboratory scale batch reactor to produce activated carbons

Please note that the job is no longer active!

The obtainment of activated carbons with high surface area, suitable for adsorption processes, requires the activation of the intermediate product obtained in the carbonization step, and aims to favor the development of a high porous texture, typical of the activated carbon.

The activation process will be carried out in a laboratory scale plant equipped with a thermocontrolled batch reactor and mass-flow controllers to assure constant flow rates of the activating gas (steam, CO2 or air). Activation tests will be carried out by changing type and amount of the activating gas, grain size of the carbonaceous material, temperature and time of the activation process, monitoring yields and chemico-physical properties of activated carbons in order to determine the optimal reaction conditions.

Please note that the full description may be available in the national language since some job boards have their own publication policy. Thank you for your understanding!
