Activated Carbon Production Cost Analysis 2020
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.
Procurement Resource provides an in-depth cost analysis of Activated Carbon production. The report incorporates the manufacturing process with detailed process and material flow, capital investment, operating costs along with financial expenses and depreciation charges. The study is based on the latest prices and other economic data available. We also offer additional analysis of the report with detailed breakdown of all cost components (Capital Investment Details, Production Cost Details, Economics for another Plant Location, Dynamic Cost Model).
