Predicting chromium (VI) adsorption rate in the treatment of liquid-phase oil-based drill cuttings

  The adsorption rate of chromium (VI) on commercial activated carbon during the treatment of the flocculation effluent of liquid-phase oil-based drill-cuttings has been investigated in terms of contact time and initial chromium (VI) ion concentration. Homogenizing 1 g of the activated carbon with 100 ml of the flocculation effluent of known initial concentrations (1.25 → 6.25 mg/l, in turn) in a flask, at...
