Activated carbons are widely used in different industrial processes for example as adsorbents or as support materials. Advantageously these carbons can be prepared from residual or waste biomass materials. Different raw material type and activation procedure plays an important role in the physico-chemical characteristics of activated carbon e.g. surface area, porosity and pore distribution. In this study, activated carbon has been prepared from lignocellulosic waste materials (e.g. saw dust, lignin residue) and characterized by a number of methods. Further, adsorption properties of carbons were evaluated. Adsorption capacity of dyes and metals was high (methylene blue dye 86 % and zinc metal 97 % removal) onto prepared activated carbons.

Bisphenol A removal from water by biomass-based carbon : Isotherms, kinetics and thermodynamics studies Juhola, Riikka; Runtti, Hanna; Kangas, Teija; Hu, Tao; Romar, Henrik; Tuomikoski, Sari (Taylor & Francis, 2020)Biomass-based carbon was modified and used as an efficient bisphenol A (BPA) sorbent. The simple and environmentally friendly modification method produced sorbent with a capacity of 41.5 mg/g. The raw material was modified ...
Lahti, Riikka; Bergna, Davide; Romar, Henrik; Hu, Tao; Comazzi, Alberto; Pirola, Carlo; Bianchi, Claudia L.; Lassi, Ulla (Springer, 2017)Cobalt catalysts are known to have a high activity and selectivity in the Fischer–Tropsch reaction converting synthesis gas to higher hydrocarbons (C5+). These catalysts have been supported by different porous materials. ...
Prati, Laura; Bergna, Davide; Villa, Alberto; Spontoni, Paolo; Bianchi, Claudia L.; Hu, Tao; Romar, Henrik; Lassi, Ulla (Elsevier B.V., 2018)In this study activated carbons were produced from the wood of three different wood species (pine, birch, spruce). The resulting activated carbons were characterized in bulk for ash content, carbon content (elemental ...
Response of microbial biomass and carbon dynamics to changing hydrological conditions in old peat deposits Mpamah, Promise (Jyväskylän yliopisto, 2018)Peatlands play key roles in the global ecosystem carbon (C) balance, as important C-stores. Their efficiency as long-term C-stores or atmospheric C sink is affected by the rate of microbial mineralization. Most studies ...
