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.

  • 2. Introduction Aim of the WorkshopAdsorption is a process of attracting molecules from The workshop will expose or reveal to the participantsbulk fluid to a solid surface. The best and most famous that condensed secret of AC that has been withheld byof such solids known is activated carbon. Activated some few individuals in the world. Comprehensivecarbon (AC) is one of the best discoveries that man ever information on AC from laboratory research, industrialmade in technological advancement. Some regards AC production and its applicability by consumers will beas natures gift to man with its use in air, water and food unveiled. The workshop will prove to you that good ACpurification, and in the field of medicine which are has never failed in its application unless if there wasamong man’s essential commodities. It can also be something wrong with its production or usage.used for treating industrial effluents, oil spills and aninexhaustible list of areas of application.
