Scarcity of drinking water is one of the major problems in Bangladesh. Use of waste tyre rubber granules as a filter media has been identified to treat butachlor-bearing water. Waste tyre rubber granules have been used in a fixed bed column reactor. The experiment has been conducted with 2 mg/l of initial butachlor concentrations for bed depth of 25 cm. It has been found that 1 gm of waste tyre rubber granules can purify 0.021 liter of distilled water and 0.018 liter of tap water having 2 mg/l of butachlor. Experimental data has been found to have a better correlation with BET isotherm based theoretical breakthrough curves. Service time obtained from BDST approach and experimental breakthrough curves are found to very close. Efficiency of the system has been found 80% and 73% based on contact approach and adsorbent usage approach, respectively.
