The vision of this research was to investigate the removal of thiophene sulphur compounds from high sulphur content (1.3%) diesel oil by adsorptive desulphurisation process using powdered activated carbon. The adsorptive desulphurisation process was performed under three different operating conditions such as amounts of activated carbon (g), treatment temperatures (°C) and stirring time (minutes). Results showed that these operating parameters influence the removal of sulphur compounds from diesel oil. The maximum desulphurisation obtained was 76.16%.
