A review article of Rapid Small-Scale Column Tests

Rapid Small‑Scale Column Tests (RSSCTs) can be used for quick and easy laboratory verification of adsorption efficiencies on various adsorbents. The selection of adsorbent is the most important aspect when incorporating adsorption technology into the operation of the drinking water purification plant, or the wastewater treatment plant. The tests are carried out on laboratory‑scale, which minimizes material and operating costs. The article focuses on the adsorption on granular activated carbon (GAC), as it is the most commonly used type of adsorbent.
