About

Activated carbon is a form of carbon processed to have small, low-volume pores that increase the surface area available for adsorption or chemical reactions. Activated carbon is produced from organic materials with high carbon content, such as coconuts, nutshells, coal, peat and wood.

Uses & Applications

Due to high surface area, pore structure (micro, meso and macro), and high degree of surface reactivity, activated carbon can be used to purify, dechlorinate, deodorize and decolorize both liquid and vapor applications. 

Activated carbons are economical adsorbents for water purification, food grade products, cosmetology, automotive applications, industrial gas purification, petroleum and precious metal recovery mainly for gold.

Market Driving Factors

The global activated carbon market is projected to reach USD 8.9 billion by 2026 at a CAGR of 5.4%.The driving factors for the activated carbon market is its applications in water treatment and air purification
