Multicomponent adsorption is typically described by a system of
conservation laws in which the nonlinear flux terms come from explicit
functional relationships called isotherms. Unfortunately the most popular
extended Langmuir isotherm is thermodynamically inconsistent. We discuss
analysis and numerical approximation of multicomponent adsorption system where
the thermodynamically consistent isotherms are given only implicitly
