THE POWER OF ACTIVATED CARBON
Activated charcoal is used across a wide range of application spanning both industrial and commercial scenarios. It is an adsorptive material that is a safe, cost effective and a way to trap odors and control moisture. Activated carbon is carbon that has been treated with oxygen at high temperatures to open up millions of tiny pores. The pores act like sponges, attracting, absorbing and trapping many toxins and impurities. Picture a sponge soaking up water. The sponge represents the activated charcoal, and the water represents the toxins. Adsorption on the other hand is the process where certain chemicals are attracted to activated carbon and then bond to it. One of carbon’s strong suits is its ability to decolorize and remove taste from water.
