Abstract

The objective of this research was to determine the effectiveness of olive mill waste-based granular activated carbon in the adsorption of some volatile organic acids. In comparison with commercial activated carbon, the different parameters interfering with carbonization, activation and BET (Brunauer-Emmet-Teller) surface area were investigated.
