  • Application of air stripping to powdered activated carbon adsorption of geosmin and 2-methylisoborneol

    Removal of odor-causing compounds (OCCs) including geosmin and 2-methylisoborneol (2-MIB), well known to cause the musty and earthy odor in drinking water, was investigated using powdered activated carbon (PAC) adsorption and air stripping processes. Removal by air stripping was mainly affected by aeration flow rates with volumetric mass-transfer rates of 0.002–0.005 min−1. Aeration also proved ...
