Water purification is very necessary to provide clean and quality water to all livings for their survival. Various techniques for water treatment is in use now a days. The most common and useable method is the adsorption. The activated carbons generated from different ingredients like walnut shell, bagasse and the rice husk. The adsorbent generated from activated carbon can be efficiently utilized for municipal wastewater to be treated to reduce TSS, TDS, COD, turbidity, EC, pH and Temperature. These activated carbons occur naturally and environmentally friendly. Also, no bad effect on humans. Mostly used for the treatment of municipal wastewater. Walnut Shell, Bagasse and Rice Husk conversion to activated carbon minimizing the cost of waste transfer and gives cheap resources for generation of activated carbon.
