Abstract:A three-component kinetic adsorption model was developed to describe competitive adsorption of a trace organic compound in the presence of NOM. NOM was simplified into two fractions: a strongly competing fraction that directly competes for adsorption sites, and a large, pore blocking fraction that blocks carbon pores. The model predictions were verified by experimental data obtained using model compounds. Model simulations for different operating conditions were made to optimize the PAC/MF system.
