ABSTRACT:
This study was suggested for the possibility of producing activated carbon from natural asphalt (very large quantities in our country at Abo-Aljeer fault in Anbar, west of Iraq). The resulted activated carbon then mixed with waste condensation polymers widely used in factories and homes as a thermal insulator to improve its properties. Pyrolysis product of natural asphalt and phenol formaldehyde polymer waste was chemically activated with potassium hydroxide, and dilute hydrochloric acid was used to remove any trace of polluter. The effect of preparation conditions on the produced activated carbon characteristics as an adsorbent was measured with the iodine adsorption (internal porosity) and methylene blue (surface area). This method has an economic and environmental advantages.
