This study investigates the ability of Latrobe Valley brown coal itself to adsorb organic and inorganic components from MTE product water. The adsorbent/water contact mechanism used in this paper is the physical mixing of MTE water with brown coal. The ability of the coals to remove Dissolved Organic Carbon (DOC) and cations increased with the concentration of these components in the MTE water.
