About Activated Charcoal

Activated charcoal, also called activated carbon, is a form of carbon processed to have small, low-volume pores that increase the surface area available for adsorption or chemical reactions. Activated charcoal is carbon produced from carbonaceous source materials such as bamboo, coconut husk, wood, coir, willow peat, lignite, coal, and petroleum pitch.

Activated charcoal is used in methane and hydrogen storage, solvent recovery, air purification, decaffeination, water purification, gold purification, metal extraction, sewage treatment, medicine, air filters in respirators and many more. One major industrial application involves use of activated carbon in metal finishing for purification of electroplating solutions.
