Session: 1, Room:
The aim of presented research is to use biochar produced from waste biomass for removal of veterinary antibiotic tiamulin from model wastewater. Produced biochar was activated using different chemical methods (KOH treatment under various conditions). It was characterised using BET method for the determination of the pore size distribution and pore volume fraction as well as SEM microscopy. Results indicated importance of biochar activation to achieve applicable adsorption characteristics. In 180 minutes of batch experiment up to 78% of tiamulin was removed.
