Study of adsorption competence of carbon black obtained from scrap tyres pyrolysis plant for removal of Ni (II) from waste waters
Megha Khurma,  Swarooplaxmi Mudliar
Present study is based on the scope of utilization of industrial wastes in minimization of effluent pollution caused in our ecosystem. Heavy metal pollution is on a rise with the ever increasing disposal of hazardous chemical waste in our water bodies. For this carbon black is chosen as an adsorbent material which was obtained from furnace oil producing plant, which uses wastage tyres as a raw material. It was investigated for its adsorption competency for Nickel adsorption from aqueous solutions. The sorption capacity of carbon black was examined as a function of pH, agitating speed, and adsorbent concentration. The biosorption process was very fast; 88.65% of Ni (II) removal occurred and maximum removal obtained at pH of 3. The surface characteristics of carbon black have been discussed using SEM, FTIR and XRD. The results indicate that carbon black can be employed as a eco-friendly low cost alternative to commercial adsorbents in the removal of Nickel (II) from water and wastewater.
