Carbon dioxide gas, CO2 with high levels in the air
creates very serious global problem linked to the climatic
changes, mostly in relation to anthropogenic emission sources.
Adsorption process is among many effective techniques for
removing such gas from the air. In this study, an attempt has
been made to investigate the effectiveness of activated carbon
(AC). obtained from easy available agricultural by-products
dates stones (DS) in capturing CO2 emissions from mobile
sources, during which carbon-containing automobiles fuels are
burned. AC is filled into an automobile exhaust using a glass
model design and a stream of CO2 was supplied from cylinder.
During the removal process, the effect of the AC adsorbents on
capturing CO2 was investigated using FTIR spectroscopy. The
degree of turbidity and pH change of solutions as an affect of
contact with CO2 were also investigated.
