Abstract : The purpose of this study was to develop bench and pilot scale adsorption data on selected grades of coal based granular activated carbon (GAC) to identify and select sources of GAC for competitive procurement for the Rocky Mountain Arsenal (RMA) North Boundary Treatment Project/ A test plan setting forth each phase of the work to be performed was prepared and submitted to RMA on September 30, 1980. Items identified for study during the first phase (Task 1-Alternate Carbon Source Study) included selecting carbons for evaluation, developing adsorption isotherms for those carbons and obtaining dynamic adsorption data in pilot scale carbon columns. The test work was to be performed by R/H at RMA facilities with assistance from and chemical analyses provided by RMA. An Interim Report summarizing the results of preliminary carbon source screening efforts, adsorption isotherm testing and results of laboratory reactivation of four samples of spent granular activated carbon was submitted to RMA on January 30, 1981. This Report includes the results of all studies conducted under Task 1 of the project.
