Low cost treatment of the wastewater is the need of the hour. Wastewater treatment can be carried out by various chemical, physical and biological methods. Water treatment technologies in the developing world typically focus on removing various types of impurities from waste water such as suspended solids, microbial pathogens, inorganic and organic components. Adsorption by using low cost adsorption is widely studies treatment method. Activated carbon has the capacity to remove these problematic chemicals from waste water. A simple, inexpensive and effective activated carbon production process use local agriculture waste. Acetic acid is present in the effluent from petroleum, fine chemical, pharmaceutical and textile industry. The present research is carried out to remove acetic acid from synthetic effluent using adsorbent prepared from rice husk.
Key words: Adsorption, activation, percentage removal, activated carbon.
