Principles & Applications of Adsorption by Activated Carbon Workshop

  1. 1. The 3rd workshop on Principles and Applications of Adsorption by Activated Carbon Date Venue Time : 10th March 2014 (Monday) : Eastin Hotel, Penang : 9:00 am – 5:00 pm HRDF Claimable* *Subject to HRDF Approval Organized and managed by: In collaboration with: USAINS Holding Sdn. Bhd. Universiti Sains Malaysia (wholly-owned by Universiti Sains Malaysia) Activated Carbons
  2. 2. Introduction Adsorption is a process of attracting molecules from bulk fluid to a solid surface. The best and most famous of such solids known is activated carbon. Activated carbon (AC) is one of the best discoveries that man ever made in technological advancement. Some regards AC as natures gift to man with its use in air, water and food purification, and in the field of medicine, which are among man’s essential commodities. It can also be used for treating industrial effluents, oil spills and an inexhaustible list of areas of application. Since its use cuts across almost every aspects of life, it is imperative for people to be informed on potentials in AC applications.  As a researcher in AC field, do you wish to know the current trend research areas and be at the cutting edge of your profession?  As an entrepreneur or producer of AC, do you wish to find out what consumers or the world wants from AC producers cum modern and easier ways of producing AC in large quantity?  As a potential consumer of AC, do wish to find out the numerous challenges or problems that AC can solve and the best and latest ways of using it?  As researcher and postgraduate student, are you interested to know the current research trends and future directions in the field? These and a lot of other information would be made clear in this workshop. Come and join us, don’t be left out. Workshop outcomes At the end of this workshop, participants should be able to:  Master the fundamental principles of adsorption and its applications.  Master the fundamentals of AC production by conventional and microwave methods.  Master modern and easier ways of producing large quantity of AC.  Understand the chemistry and engineering activity that goes on when AC is solving your problem.  Improve their ability to select the right type of AC for any given challenge/problem/application.  Understand AC regeneration techniques and to be able to use your AC as many times as you wish before discarding it. Aim of the Workshop The workshop will expose or reveal to the participants that condensed secret of AC that has been withheld by some few individuals in the world. Comprehensive information on AC from laboratory research, industrial production and its applicability by consumers will be unveiled. The workshop will prove to you that good AC has never failed in its application unless if there was something wrong with its production or usage. Targeted Audience The workshop is designed for Researchers, Managers, Engineers, Technicians, Chemists and the general populace who wants to have basic and in-depth understanding on AC, its production, working mechanism, areas of applications and regeneration. Topics of the workshop  Principles of adsorption process.  Application of adsorption process in gas and liquid phases (modern methods).  Modeling of adsorption process-Batch and continuous systems.  The world of AC.  Good AC: starting materials, classification and properties.  Methods of production: conventional and microwave heating methods.  In-depth knowledge of AC through its characterization.  Life cycle/Reusability/Regeneration of AC for adsorption.  The past, current research trends and future directions in the field. Workshop Fee: (Covers a printed copy of course material, refreshment including lunch and Certificate of Attendance.) Normal : MYR 599.00 per person Group : MYR 499.00 per person (Minimum 3 participants from the same institution) Student : MYR 399.00 per person – Proof of I.D. is required Seats are limited!
