These investigations are an exploration into the principal question: Is it possible to prepare active carbon with a sufficiently high surface area from sludge? Additional problems directing the preliminary research are: 1. Does the active carbon thus prepared have satisfactory adsorption properties? 2. Does the presence of the carbon particles affect the rate and/or degree of the biological oxidation? 3. The mixture of sludge and active carbon must be dewatered before entering the combined pyrolysis and activation furnace. Therefore, does the active carbon act as a filter aid? 21 refs.
