WHAT IS ACTIVATED CARBON?

UNIQUE PROPERTIES

Activated carbon (often referred to as 'activated charcoal') is a material that has been processed to contain extremely high internal surface areas (> 800 m²/g). Due to this high surface area, it is excellent at removing impurities from liquid and gas streams as materials become physically bound to the inside of the carbon surface (through a process called 'adsorption'), immobilising them. These properties render activated carbon an excellent filter for domestic and industrial applications.

LARGE MARKET OPPORTUNITIES

The global activated carbon market is currently valued at around $10BN and is growing at almost 10% per year. The uses for activated carbon are diverse, and growing in number. Some of the most common markets include:​
