Utilization of Annona senegalensis as a Sorbent for THE Removal of Crude Oil from Aqueous Media
Journal of Energy Research and Reviews,
In the present study, the efficiency of Annona senegalensis fiber to remove crude oil from aqueous solution was evaluated. The crude Annona senegalensis (CAS), retted Annona senegalensis (RAS) and bleach Annona senegalensis (PFAS) were subjected to sorption studies to optimize their sorption capacity. The results revealed that the efficiency of sorbent to remove crude oil from water is related to the sorbent weight, contact time, initial oil concentration and temperature of sorption. It was found out that increase in sorbent weight led to increase in sorption capacity from 3.99-5.25g/g, 5.51-7.12g/g, and 5.01-6.72g/g in CAS, RAS and PFAS respectively. Increased in Initial oil concentration also increased the oil sorption capacity by 20-21% until it reach equilibrium. Sorption time was varied from 10, 20, 30, 40, 50, 60 and 70 minutes and the highest sorption capacity was recorded at 30 minutes before a gradual decreased was observed. Sorption capacity decreased with increased in temperature above 400C. The sorbent exhibited good reusability after 8 cycles, with less than 50 % reduction in sorption capacity. The kinetics of crude oil sorption onto CAS, RAS and PFAS follow the second- order model with correlation coefficients higher than 0.99. The results obtained revealed that crude oil adsorption onto the Annona senegalensis fiber can be used as an effective adsorbent to oil spill cleanup in water bodies.
