Chapter 4 - Summary of research on biochar adsorption of chemical pollutants
4.3. The contactor
4.3.1. Batch (CSTR) systems versus fixed-bed contactors
There are a number of configurations used in engineered systems for bringing a solid sorbent material into contact with a liquid (or gas) stream containing pollutants for removal. The two most common are the continuously-stirred tank reactor (CSTR) (or batch reactor) and the fixed-bed contactor…
