In this study, we wanted to draw the attention of scientists to the importance of specific biomass treatments for functional activated carbon preparation. For this, cost-free waste textile materials that could not be reused in the textile industry were pretreated in a controlled manner. The effect of chemical treatment was investigated in terms of SEM, BET, XRD, and FT-IR characterization techniques with the dye removal performances of samples for methyl orange (MO) and industrial wastewater (IW) solution. - Waste textile remnants were converted into functional carbon-rich adsorbents - Chemical type, amounts, and carbonization conditions were seen as dominant in material properties - Recycling waste materials had double outcomes: environmental preservation, and production of fine chemicals by controlled chemical activation of waste textile materials. 25-85 mg/g methyl orange (MO) and industrial textile water (ITW) removal capacity were recorded for all samples. - As a result of chemical treatment, an energy-saving method is presented by decreasing the optimum carbonization temperature by 50 °C.


Steps to reproduce

The importance of chemical activation before the carbonization of the carbon source was dealt with in this study. When textile wastes are pretreated with chemicals, carbonization conditions and product properties change. Experiments and evaluations of specific wastes used in this study were made from these known data.
