A processing unit of bio-sourced magnetic activated carbon featured in magnetic separation for water treatment – Step 1

Magnetic activated carbon (MAC) is produced from biomass waste, and a bench processing unit for MAC was developed for water treatment use. This project is planned to design, manufacture, and test a pilot processing unit, with magnetic separation continuous water treatment. The validation of such a unit will enable a precise calculation of the carbon footprint, determine the competing merits and market opportunity of MAC.
