  Inexpensive remediation method was adopted for Atrazine adsorption by derived Poultry Droppings (PD) and Poultry Wastes (PW) activated carbon. This was proposed to improve the ecological system and add value to the Biomass. GCMS quantitation was employed to investigate the sorption efficiency of the organochlorine herbicide from aqueous phase as it was evidently experimented. Performance of acid catalyzed (PD/A) and Salt treated (PW/Z) sorbents respectively demonstrated about 91.908% and 83.624% atrazine uptake, being highest in their respective series. Both filters however shows a good competitive adsorption though slightly lower than the reference commercial M&B carbon (Comm.) estimated uptake of 23.731 out of 25.00 gdm-3 valued as 94.924% removal. The role played by type of activating agent and physicochemical parameters such as density (0.250-0.496) and high porosity (00.952-0.975) were discussed. The major results support the conclusion that Gas Chromatography as a quantitative instrument is critical for isolating and detecting single equilibrium phase analyte from a multicomponent sample especially when coupled with a mass Spectrophotometer detector and with external standards from same matrix.

  This study was aimed at deriving homemade activated carbon for the rate prediction of liquid phase atrazine uptake. Viable adsorption technique based on sorbate removal by phosphoric acid (H3PO4) Poultry Droppings (PD) was proposed to improve the ecological system. Two ways activation schemes generated activated carbons was applied to herbicide uptake and evaluated with three kinetic models. GC/MS quantitation experiment based on external standard method was performed to demonstrate up to 89.216% atrazine removal. The kinetic equilibrium study showed that a 300 min sorbate-sorbent interaction gave 19.293 out of 25 g dm3 adsorption (being a 77.172% adsorption). This is only 5.140, 1.992, 1.432 and 0.632% higher than the 60, 120, 180 and 240 min interaction with 72.032, 75.180, 75.740 and 76.540% atrazine removal respectively. The pseudo-second order kinetics was observed to be more suitable in predicting the adsorption rate by the sorbate wherein the initial adsorption rate, h was estimated as 0.3646 g/mg/min. A time dependent physisorption phenomenon was evidenced. The major results support the conclusion that the sorted agro-waste has the potential to serve as extractants adsorbents in remediation process.
