Comparative study of diesel sorption performance between Chorisia speciosa fibers and a commercial polyurethane foam
The objective of this work was to evaluate and compare the potential of polyurethane and kapok (Chorisia speciosa) residues as sorbent materials in the treatment of diesel spillage. To determine the sorption capacity, gravimetric tests were performed in static medium at room temperature and at different temperatures (10, 15 and 28 °C) and varying the time of contact between the sorbent material and diesel. It was observed that the sorption process occurs at a high velocity, with saturationdoi:10.1590/s1517-707620210001.1219 fatcat:yga6ilduzneqfi3gdo4kezbfha
