Processes have been designed and developed for producing microporous carbon adsorbents which are suitable for separating various gases. A carbonaceous starting material. oil palm shell, which can be found easily and abundantly in the country of Malaysia, has been used in the process to obtain various type of adsorbents for gas adsorption and separation applications. Pyrolysis. activation and chemicals impregnation have been applied for the production of the products. The adsorbents produced were verified for its physical characteristics using scanning electron microscope (SEM), thermogravimetry (TG)analysis and molecular probe technique. A gas chromotography unit is used as gas analyzer and a single column adsorber has been used for the adsorption kinetics experiments on several mixed gas system. in this study. mixed gas like CO2/CH4, was used For the separation performance tests. Adsorption uptake curves of the products were recorded and discussed for the adsorption behavior on mixed gas system. The results have shown n great feasibility of using carbon products from oil palm shell as an adsorbent For gas separation, which are applicable and useful in chemical processing industries. In addition, the development of this material is useful and economical and can he further introduced as adsorbent for pressure swing adsorption application.
