An experimental study on hydrogen sulphide (H2S) adsorption behaviours using amine-impregnated solid adsorbent (GAC/PEI) was carried out for H2S concentration in the range of 200 and 400 ppm. The dynamic adsorptions of GAC and modified GAC (2.0 and 1000 g/L PEI) in a fixed-bed column were investigated by determining the breakthrough curves and adsorption capacities of various adsorbents. The adsorbent exhibits an excellent adsorption capacity of 106.87 and 231.45 mgH2S/g-adsorbent for 200 ppm and 400 ppm H2S, respectively. The H2S breakthrough capacity is found to relate to the surface adsorption and chemical adsorption.
