The goal of this project was to investigate the ability of polycrystalline zeolite ZSM-5 aggregates to remove MTBE from water. Powdered ZSM-5 has shown to adsorb MTBE, but is impractical in flow systems due to very high pressure drops. This report will investigate the adsorption of MTBE using granular ZSM-5. The adsorption of MTBE was measured through the use of batch experiments to create an adsorption isotherm, which was used to assist in the design of a full-scale treatment system.
