Dechlorination potential of an activated carbon system for industrial wastewaters potable waters, by J.N. Nwankwo, Zambia Journal of Science and Technology, Vol.1, no.4, October 1976, Pg. 113-125


An activated carbon system was investigated as a promising approach to the dechlorination of industrial wastewaters and potable waters. The dechlorination reaction was shown to be of the first order and pH dependent. While the Presence of trace organic materials showed no detrimental effect on the reaction, deposition of surface oxides on the carbon substrate under repeated cycles of dechlorination reduced the working capacity of the activated carbon. However, in situ regeneration of the carbon at temperatures above 250°C was feasible.
