Activated Carbon Production Cost Analysis 2021

Activated carbon, better known as the activated charcoal, is a form of carbon processed to have tiny, low-volume pores, thus, enhancing the surface area available for chemical reactions. An activation level sufficient for useful applications might be derived solely from the high surface area. Further chemical treatment often enhances the product's adsorption properties.

Activated carbon is usually extracted from charcoal. When extracted from coal, it is referred to as activated coal. Activated carbon is finds its applications in methane and hydrogen storage, air purification, decaffeination, solvent recovery, metal extraction, water purification, medicine, gold purification, air filters in gas masks and respirators, sewage treatment, filters in compressed air, teeth whitening, and production of hydrogen chloride in dark, among other applications. The primary commercial application of activated carbon involves its use in metal finishing for purification of electroplating solutions.
