Activated Carbon is a non-graphite form of carbon, produced upon activation of raw material such as coal, coconut shells, wood chips, etc., by subjecting them to physical modification and thermal decomposition under a specific ambient temperature and environment. Globally, water and wastewater treatment segment is the largest end user industry where activated carbon is used for removal of impurities from contaminated wastewater or drinking water through the process of adsorption. Moreover, activated carbon is also used in air purification processes in automotive industry, food and beverage processing industry, metal recovery and pharmaceutical drug manufacturing processes. Powdered activated carbon is the most widely used form of activated carbon across the globe owing to its excellent adsorption properties in both gas and liquid phase applications.
