Oil and Gas

Activated carbon is essential in the oil and gas industry. It helps clean up oil, gas, and related fluids by trapping harmful substances. Its porous structure and large surface area make it great at this job. Activated carbon is used in refining, petrochemicals, and cleaning up environmental messes caused by the industry.

Gold Recovery

Activated carbon is crucial in recovering gold from cyanide leach solutions in gold mining operations. This process, known as carbon-in-leach (CIL) or carbon-in-pulp (CIP), relies on the adsorption properties of activated carbon to recover gold from the cyanide solution selectively.

Food and Beverages

Activated carbon is widely used in the food and beverage industry for various purification and filtration processes. Its porous structure and large surface area make it an excellent material for removing food and beverage impurities, contaminants, and off-flavors. 

Air/Gas Purification (VOC)

Activated carbon is widely used in air and gas purification due to its highly porous structure and large surface area. This material effectively removes various contaminants from air and gases through adsorption, a process where molecules adhere to the surface of the carbon.

Water and Wastewater Treatment

Water & Wastewater Treatment is a crucial process that purifies water from various sources, such as rivers, lakes, or groundwater, ensuring its safety for human consumption. This is achieved through intricate chemical processes that effectively eliminate impurities, sediments, and harmful contaminants, meeting stringent quality standards.

What is Activated Carbon

granular activated charcoal adsorbent

Activated carbon, also known as activated charcoal, is a highly porous form of carbon with a large surface area per unit volume. The term “activated” refers to the activation process, which involves treating carbon material, such as wood, peat, coconut shells, or sawdust, at high temperatures (typically 600 to 1200 degrees Celsius) in the presence … Read more
