A waste material (Dolochar) from sponge Iron plants can be converted into useful value added products by using single step pyrolysis process

The final year students from Petrochemical Engineering Department of JCT COLLEGE OF ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY COIMBATORE have developed a novel technique to convert the dolochar into activated carbon which can be effectively utilized as an adsorbant for several industrial purposes. Several tons of waste material emanating from Sponge Iron industries can be adopted to generate wealth from waste by using this method.
