Abstract

Oil Sorption by Heat-Treated Rice Husks

Kudaybergenov KK, Ongarbayev ЕK and Mansurov ZА

Rice husks, an agricultural waste, were thermally treated and evaluated as an adsorbent for oil with the goal of being used as a remediation strategy for oil spills of oil based products. The oil sorption capacity was examined of thermally-treated, carbonized rice husks which are mainly composed of silicates. Results showed that the oil sorption capacities of the carbonized rice husks prepared at 700°C is 16 g/g for heavy crude oil. The microstructure and morphology of the carbonized rice husks were investigated by FTIR spectrometry and Scanning Election Microscope (SEM).
