Robert Potwora to Give Presentation During WQA Aquatech in San Antonio
His presentation, "Removing MTBE from Water with Activated Carbon" will be March 10, 2011 at 11:30 AM in the Henry B. Gonzalez Convention Center on Aquastage 3. Selecting the right type of activated carbon is critical for effective MTBE removal and increasing the duration the activated carbon will last before replacement with new activated carbon is required. Methyl tertiary-butyl ether (MTBE) has been used as a gasoline additive since 1979. Its use as a gasoline additive has mainly been replaced by ethanol. But MTBE still persists in groundwater because it is poorly broken down in the soil by natural biodegradation. Due to the physical and chemical characteristics of MTBE, it is not adsorbed well by standard activated carbons.
Carbon Resources Sabre C Series® granular activated carbon is particularly effective for MTBE removal from water. Its micropore structure is well suited for adsorption of MTBE from water.
