Description:

The quantitative estimation of the spontaneous bioregeneration degree of activated carbon (AC) with native biofilm is made under continuous using of the filters for drinking water purification. The possibilities of the using of other
methods of adsorption capacity restoration of AC (by washing of water, of alkaline solution, of chlorophorm) are studied. It is shown that practically full restoration of AC qualities can be realized by the combination of thermal treatment under low temperature with the washing of alkaline solution. In case of choice of the AC type for long term water purification in biofiltration regime it is expediently to be oriented on the mezoporous sorbents mainly.
