Growing environmental concerns associated with the production of activated carbon (AC), high production costs, and the rapidly growing demand for AC in water and wastewater treatment have driven research interest into more sustainable alternative AC precursors, particularly biomass wastes. This has seen a wide array of biomass waste types identified as potential candidates for AC production, including agricultural wastes, forestry residues, and municipal solid wastes, among others.
