The following projects are based on Coconut shells. This list shows the latest innovative projects which can be built by students to develop hands-on experience in areas related to/ using Coconut shells.
Activated carbon has been there with us for centuries. It has wide applications in various industries e.g. in the water-treatment, dye, sugar refining, among others. All the activated carbon available in Kenya is imported. Therefore, production of activated carbons locally and from locally available materials would be one of the most lucrative and environment-friendly solutions to this as it would transform negative–valued wastes to valuable materials. Thus, the main objective of this project is to prepare activated carbons from coconut shells using a two-step method and to establish the optimum conditions of production.
