Activated Charcoal Research Reports

Activated Charcoal Research Reports

Activated charcoal is a fine black powder made from bone char, coconut shells, peat, petroleum coke, coal, olive pits or sawdust. The charcoal is activated by processing it at very high temperatures. The high temperatures change its internal structure, reducing the size of its pores and increasing its surface area. This results in a charcoal that is more porous than regular charcoal. Activated charcoal shouldn’t be confused with charcoal briquettes that are used to light your barbecue. While both can be made from the same base materials, charcoal briquettes have not been activated at high temperatures. Moreover, they contain additional substances that are toxic to humans.

The growing adoption of activated carbon across various industrial sectors is expected to drive the global activated carbon market in the forthcoming years. Due to exceptional physical and functional properties of activated charcoal, the demand for activated charcoal is likely to grow at a rapid pace during the forecast period. Among various applications, the use of activated carbon to eliminate metal from wastewater is projected to gain considerable traction due to the booming industrial sector that produce metal waste streams. In addition, the regulatory landscape continues to compel industrial participants to invest in wastewater treatment technologies due to which, the demand for activated carbon is likely to grow at a rapid pace. Activated carbon is also used to eliminate unwanted odor, taste, iodine & chlorine residual, and various man-made organic chemicals such as paint thinners and pesticides, among others.

Activated charcoal finds applications in an array of industrial sectors, including water treatment, food & beverages, pharmaceutical, and personal care. At present, the soaring demand for unadulterated and filtrated fresh water particularly from underdeveloped and developing regions of the world is expected to play a key role in boosting the overall growth of the activated carbon market during the forecast period. The demand for activated carbon for water treatment applications has witnessed a considerable growth over the past few year and hence helped the development of the activated charcoal market.
