    “Oil was expelled from seawater in a clump procedure using 2 different natural adsorbents which are charcoal and rice hull. Samples collected after adsorption were characterized using UV Spectroscopy and subsequently, the adsorption capacity of crude oil was studied. The outcome of contact time and adsorbent dosage were studies concerning their impact on removal of oil. It was seen that as the adsorbent amount and contact time are increased, oil removal is enhanced. Charcoal was proven to be the most efficient adsorbent with removal efficiency of 99.67% followed by rice hull.”
