About: Purified charcoal in powder form is called activated carbon. It is subjected to physical or chemical treatment to produce microfissures, greatly enhancing its adsorptive surface area. Numerous polar chemicals, particularly phenols and their derivatives, can be successfully adsorbed thanks to the large surface area (500–1500 m2/g) and electrical charge. The main purposes of activated carbon are to lighten wine or eliminate unpleasant aromas. For various uses, there are several preparations available.

Activated Carbon Price Trend for the Second Quarter of 2022


With the emergence of Covid-19, a massive surge in the price of activated charcoal is seen due to the increasing demands for masks and other primary protection gears. The price trend for activated carbon is steadily rising in Asia, averaging 10700 RMB/MT.


Activated carbon prices are steadily increasing within the EU due to the ongoing conflicts and the inflated crude oil and freight charges. The price of primary feedstock carbon reached around 91 USD/MT, which again caused a surge in the price of activated carbon.

For the First Quarter of 2022


Per ton price of activated carbon was 10266.67 RMB/MT towards the end of March. Due to severe air quality standards and a growth in the number of municipal and industrial wastewater treatment plants, the demand for activated carbon had skyrocketed. The rising pressure on the manufacturers due to the high production cost of the mineral was a prominent factor in the business. As a result, reactivated carbon was a major priority for activated carbon manufacturers. The cost of reactivated carbon is 20-30% less than that of fresh activated carbon. It is a less expensive alternative to activated carbon. Traditional activated carbon is more environmentally friendly than reactivated carbon. When compared to the manufacture of virgin material, the thermal reactivation method reduces carbon dioxide emissions by five times.
