- Zeolite-activated carbon (Z-AC) composite was synthesized with oil palm ash as precursor.
- The adsorption process was well supported by kinetic and isothermal models.
- The adsorption capacity of Z-AC for MB was superior to similar types of adsorbents.
- The Z-AC composite represents low-cost composites as adsorbents for dye removal.
A mesoporous high-surface-area zeolite-activated carbon (Z-AC) composite was prepared by chemically facilitated NaOH activation and hydrothermal treatment with oil palm ash as substrate. The prepared Z-AC composite was characterized by X-ray diffraction, Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy, BET surface area and pore structural analysis, and scanning electron microscopy. The adsorption performance of Z-AC for methylene blue (MB) removal was examined using a batch method. The effects of initial dye concentration (25-400Â mg/L), temperature (30Â Â°C-50Â Â°C), and pH (3-13) on the adsorption of MB on Z-AC were studied. Pseudo-second-order kinetics was found to describe the adsorption process better than pseudo-first-order kinetics. Freundlich and Langmuir isotherms applied on the adsorption data reveal that data best fitted Freundlich model. The maximum adsorption capacity values of the Z-AC composite for MB were 143.47, 199.6, and 285.71Â mg/g at 30, 40, and 50Â Â°C, respectively. These results show that the Z-AC composite could provide basis for more low-cost composites to be used as adsorbents for dye removal.
