Oxygenated additive (MTBE) widely used as octane enhancer of gasoline. Due to high water solubility of MTBE (50 gr/l), it can pollute ground waters as a result of production, storage, leakages of oxygenated gasoline from pipelines cracking, underground storage tanks in gas stations, transportation and distribution of MTBE. These items are major source of pollution of ground waters. MTBE concentration in a given well was considered 50 ppb. Treating this water with adsorption process on granular activated carbon filtrasorb (F-600) that has high-energy sites was studied by RSSCT and pilot plant methods and their results were compared. RSSCT system was designed to simulate pilot plant scale at EBCT=10 min. According to the results, breakthrough time calculated by RSSCT method was completely similar to operational value in pilot plant study.
