The utilization of peanut hulls as liquid adsorbent chars
The annual national production of peanut hulls averages about two hundred million pounds. These hulls are generally disposed of as fuel in the plante processing the nuts or discarded as waste material. Similar cellulosic wastes have been profitably utilized in the past as activated ohars. It was the purpose of this work to determine the conditions by which peanut hulls could be converted to liquid adsorbent chars.
