CO2 gas adsorption; septic tank; zeolite; activated carbon


Human housing activities are estimated to contribute Greenhouse Gas (GHG) emmissions up to 15 of total GHG emissions. In these activities, 76 of GHG are produced as a by-product of septic tank treatment unit with carbon dioxide (CO2) and methane (CH4) being the dominant gases. In order to reduce GHG emitted to the atmosphere, some efforst we can do are methane gas recovery as a biogas energy source, while the other gasses including CO2 need to be adsorbed so that they would not be emitted to the atmosphere. This study aims to determine the amount of gas produced from household septic tank unit, and the efficieny of CO2 adsorption using zeolite and activated carbon. This study was done using septic tak sludge. The result shows that CO2 was produced up to 35. The activated carbon was the most optimum media with 8 gram in weight to remove up ti 61.2 of CO2 for three days. While for zeolite, the most optimum variable was by using 2 gram of zeolite media, with up to 100 removal of CO2
