Abstract

A method for the preparation of chars from oil palm shell at various carbonization temperatures was presented. Chars were prepared by a direct carbonization technique in a fluidized bed reactor and a vertical tube furnace. Volumetric gas uptake measurements were used to establish the diffusion rate profiles, absorption capacities and the oxygen/nitrogen separation selectivity. The adsorption kinetic behavior of the chars was also compared with a commercial carbon molecular seive (CMS) sample.
