Coconut Base Carbon Overview

Activated Carbon can be produced from any carbonaceous material such as coconut shells.  Coconut shells are a renewable and sustainable choice.  Coconut base GAC pores are small and uniform making it useful for the reduction of a smaller molecular contaminants.

Activated Carbon Notes

Activated carbon adsorbs contaminants (adsorbates).  The adsorbates stick to the pore; they are not absorbed into the carbon.
