Based on the results can be concluded that chitosan, chitin and coconut bagasse have a performance considerable on the adsorption of 2,4 dichlorophenol and 2,4,6 trichlorophenol. The order of adsorption capacity was as follow: chitosan> chitin> coconut shell.
They are free of chemicals such as brominated phenols (TBP), trichlorophenol (TCP) and methyl phenols (MP) often used by overseas pallet manufacturers instead of heat treatment.

While current regulations list allowable discharge levels of pentachlorophenol and trichlorophenol, the advance copy of the proposed rule simply notes that the EPA is "reserving" standards for toxic pollutants.
Among the compounds tested, three patterns of removal were found: 1) rapid removal of phenol, orthochlorophenol, and dichlorophenol; 2) removal after a short lag period of mono and dichlorobenzenes; and 3) no removal for trichlorophenol. The adaptation period can be explained best by the time required to induce expression by the enzymes present in the genetic material of a significant part of the bacterial population.
