Abstract—The removal of organo-sulfur compounds (ORS) from diesel fuel is an important aspect of all countries to reduce air pollution by reducing the emission of toxic gases such as sulfur oxides and other polluted materials. One of the easily and fast method to remove sulfur from diesel oil is the adsorption desulfurization process. Adsorption-desulfurization process of diesel fuel was proposed and examined. Local diesel fuel of 410 ppm sulfur content was treated with commercial activated carbon and carbonized date palm kernel powder at room temperature in batch work. The contact time were examined and chosen. The addition of activated carbon caused reduction in sulfur content by more than 54% of the original sulfur content value while carbonized date palm kernel powder without any activation process showed lower performance toward sulfur recovery. This high reduction will definitely improve the emission quality and reduce the harmful effect of the combustion process of diesel fuel to the environment.

Index Terms—Activated carbon, adsorption process, desulfurization process, diesel oil.
