In the present work an attempt was made to obtain mineral–carbon sorbents by thermal decompositon. The mineral matrix for
the sorbents (aluminium hydroxide) was based on petrochemical waste stream containing considerable amounts of aluminium chloride.
Reference tests were carried out with a model solution prepared with the use of analytical grade AlCl3. Atactic polypropylene and hydrocarbon mixtures obtained in the flotation of petrochemical waste waters were used as carbon-containing
The aim of this work was to determine the adsorption and structural characteristics of the complex sorbents and to check the
possibility of evaluation of their hydrophobic-hydrophilic properties.
