Assessing granular activated carbon capacity for algal T & O removal

Project Number # 4544-19

Assessing granular activated carbon capacity for algal taste and odour removal: Development of a predictive tool

Project Leader:  Rafael Paulino

The use of granular activated carbon to remove algal metabolites will be investigated. Adsorption and biodegradation of algal metabolites will be monitored and modelled in the laboratory and at pilot scales, with the aim of guaranteeing safe and cost-effective drinking water treatment.
