What Is Activated Carbon?

Carbon is the earth's most abundant element. The most common sources of carbon are coal, coconut shell, wood, peat, and lignite. Coal, coconut shell and wood are the principal raw materials used in the manufacture of activated carbons.

The raw materials that Continental Carbon Group uses for activated carbon are carefully selected and then processed at temperatures of 200° - 300° C to remove natural volatile, components and residual moisture levels. This is the initial "carbonization" stop. Next, the carbonized raw material is heated at extreme temperatures for 900° - 1,000° C. The resulting activated carbon is a powerful adsorbent with an internal core structure having sizes of nuclear dimensions.

A teaspoon of activated carbon has a surface area equivalent to that of a football field. This vast internal surface are is what gives activated carbon its unique ability to adsorb a wide range of compounds from both the gas and liquid phases.
