Using Rice Husks in Water Purification in Brazil : Using Rice Husks in Water Purification in Brazil

Abstract
Rice husk, which considered a waste, has a high level of silicon. This paper investigates the use of carbonized rice husk in
water purification. The carbonization was done using a handmade carbonizer. The preparation process starts with the
production of a precursor that is rich in carbon through the pyrolysis of the rice husk in an inert atmosphere. The results show
an important contribution of the use of carbonic materials, by giving a direct evidence of the permanence of sodium ion Na+ in
activated carbon. The results also show that the utilization of carbonized rice husks in the purification of water is quick,
efficient and economically viable.
