Activated carbons with appropriate adsorptive properties were produced from sawdust and seeds of a stone-fruit. The carbonaceous raw materials were carbonized and activated by steam. Starting with sawdust a decolorizing powdered carbon with low density could be produced. The seeds of the stone-fruit investigated could be converted to a product of high density suitable for water purification. By proper selection of the agricultural by-products a great variety of activated carbons can be obtained.
