Moving Carbon Bed Adsorption

In this process, the wastewater after SS removal flows through activated carbon beds, which adsorb a large portion of soluble organic molecules.

The carbon is continuously reactivated in a furnace and returned to the top of the vertical beds. This physico-chemical treatment process does not rely on bacteria to degrade organic matter. For industrial wastewater in which no SS are present, wastewater treatment facilities can omit the coagulation-flocculation step and treat the water only with activated carbon.
