Activated carbon is produced from carbonaceous source materials, such as coconuts, wood, coal, peat and nutshells. Activated carbon is used to purify liquids and gases in a variety of applications, including municipal drinking water, food and beverage processing, odor removal, industrial pollution control and is produced specifically so as to achieve a bigger internal surface making it ideal for adsorption. Depending on the source material, and the processing methods used to produce activated carbon, the physical and chemical properties of the end product can differ significantly. This creates a matrix of possibilities for variation in commercially produced carbons, with hundreds of varieties available. Activated carbon’s pore structure, size, and shape greatly influence the applications for which it is best suited. The raw material and the form work together to create a specific type, and each specific type is ideal for certain applications. In addition, all types of activated carbon can be impregnated with various chemicals to improve their ability to remove specific targeted compounds
