Activated Carbon is a filtration media used to remove impurities from liquids and gases and for a variety of applications such as drinking water and industrial pollution control. Activated Carbon is charcoal that has been treated to enhance the adsorption process. The large internal surface area allows for the impurities to be adsorbed into the pores of the Activated Carbon.
Activated carbon can be used in air purification to remove vapors and odor from the air. For chemical applications, activated carbon can purify solutions by adsorbing impurities. Activated Carbon is used across many environmental applications such as spill cleanup and ground water remediation. Coconut shell-based carbons are typically harder, and have a low impurity content.
