Asseau Activated Carbon

What is activated carbon?

Activated carbon is an adsorbent product obtained starting from raw materials rich in carbon (wood, peat, coal, lignite, coconut shells, fruit stones, etc.…).
Any organic raw material containing carbon basically can be used for activated carbon production, but only a few of them turn out to be economical.
The choice of the raw material will mostly depend on the local resources in order to ensure competitive cost prices.
Nevertheless, the kind of raw materials used will condition the final quality of the activated carbon.
After selection of the raw materials, they are either physically or chemically activated in an activation furnace.
With this activation we obtain, thanks to the reaction of gas and steam, a structure of carbon.
