Shungite purifies industrial waste water from petrochemicals

As a sorbent for water purifying from various industrial contaminants, as well as domestic sewage, a granular filter filled with shungite of Novocarbon 10 grade was installed. Since shungites with a carbon content of about 30% have a total porosity of 5- 10%, a significant internal surface (in the range of 10-30 m2 / g), a bulk density of about 1.1 g / cm3 , possess high mechanical strength, electrical conductivity, chemical stability , catalytic and bactericidal properties, it makes shungites an attractive and promising material in the processes of drinking and technical water preparation (both in flow systems and wells), in the processes of filtration and adsorption purification of wastewater from organic and inorganic substances.
