The present work explored the use of Egyptian rice straw, an agriculture waste that lead to a global warming problem through
brown cloud, as a potential feedstock for the preparation of activated carbon with high surface area by chemical activation.
Chemical activation of this precursor, using two different methods was adopted. One of these methods was carried out using
for carbonization while activation carried out using KOH and the other method include activation using KMNO
produced activated carbon was fully characterized considering its adsorption properties (surface area and pore volumes) as well
as its chemical structure and morphology. Application of using the produced activated carbon and raw rice straw for removal
of Ni was evaluated in a batch operation system. Studying of the operating conditions namely; effects of contact time, dosage
of adsorbent, initial concentration as well as effect of pH were carried out. Also kinetics and isotherm study that describe the
adsorption process are carried out.
