Abstract

The goals of this proof-of-concept project were to (1) conduct batch experiments for aerogel-GAC and Fe-oxide impregnated GAC composites to evaluate their performance removing arsenic, (2) evaluate Fe-GAC media performance in rapid small scale column tests (RSSCTs) to assess arsenic removal in a more dynamic treatment system, (3) evaluate Fe-GAC potential for removal of organic contaminants, and (4) characterize Fe-GAC media.
