Abstract:
The objectives of this study are to (i) evaluate the process controlling fluoride (F– ) removal by ceriumimpregnated activated carbon (AC–Ce) composite, and (ii) assess the performance of that composite in the fixed-bed column as a filter. The AC–Ce composites were synthesized by collecting AC from different sources (ACDarco and ACEco). The observations from this study suggest that the homogeneous distribution of amorphous Ce within ACDarco–Ce results in high F– sorption. Formation of crystalline CeO2 and small pore size of ACEco inhibits F– sorption by ACEco–Ce. The ACDarco–Ce composite in fixed-bed filter media can treat up to 722 ml of F– contaminated water.

THE VISION
THE MISSION
ABOUT I-STEM
It has always been the basic tenet of the Government of India, in generously funding R&D efforts at academic institutions over the years, that facilities established through such support be made available to those needing them and qualified to make use of them for their own research work

However, this was never easy or straightforward for, among other reasons, there was no ready source of information of what facility was available and where. Thanks to the Web, it is much easier today to have a national and regional “inventory of resources”, so as to match users with the resources they need, and to do all this in an efficient and transparent manner.

This can lead to a leap in R&D productivity and greatly enhance the effectiveness of public investment. This is the motivation behind I-STEM.
