In general, the manufacturing process is similar for both products. PAC is applied in a manner such that it cannot be economically recovered from the water treatment stream, so it is removed with the process solid residuals. For surface water treatment, GAC can be applied as media in a filter, termed a filter adsorber, or applied in a reactor positioned after the filter, a post-filter contactor. For direct groundwater treatment, reactors similar to post-filter contactors are used. After the adsorption capacity of GAC is exhausted, it must be removed from the fixed-bed reactor and reactivated either on-site or off-site.

Adsorbate uptake kinetics and equilibrium liquid-phase concentration in a CMBR as affected by (a) the adsorbent dose and (b) adsorbent size (dAC), adsorbate diffusivity (D), and system mixing or shear 6 ________________________________________________________________ Fundamentals of Adsorption achieves equilibrium state more rapidly, lower teq, than that of large adsorbent particles. As the diffusion coefficient and the concentration of the adsorbate increases, the flux into the adsorbent increases and the adsorption sites can be reached more quickly, also decreasing the time to equilibrium.

Commercial activated carbon production is a two-step process of carbonization of the precursor materials and activation. In the pyrolytic carbonization process, the temperature of the raw material is raised to the range of 500 to 800 °C in the absence of oxygen. Volatile organic matter of the raw material is thermally released, and the carbon atoms realign to form a more crystalline structure. The carbonized product at this point in the process is heavily influenced by the raw materials used. For activated carbon products used in water treatment, a thermal or physical activation process then follows in which the temperature of the carbonized product is increased to the range of 850 to 1,000 °C in the presence of an oxidizing agent, typically steam or carbon dioxide.
