Activated Carbon

 Applications Activated Carbon

    • Water purification – dechlorination
    • Hydrocarbons/oil removal from compressed air
    • Industrial processes – removal of mercury or sulfur recovery
    • Air filtration
    • CO2 production – removal of hydrocarbons and other impurities
    • Waste water treatment

Activated Carbon is Carbon which is treated and processed to have small, low-volume pores that boosts the available surface area for adsorption or chemical reactions. Just 1 gram of Activated Carbon has an external surface area of 3.000 m², because of its high degree of microporosity. For most applications the activation level of solely the high surface area is sufficient. However further chemical treatment (impregnation) of the Activated Carbon can enhance the adsorption properties.

Activated Carbon can be used for air emission control such as the removal of volatile organic components. Activated Carbon can also be applied for the removal of inorganics like heavy metals, hydrogen sulphide and ammonia. For water purification, the adsorbent is used for the removal of chloramine.


Activated Carbon has a wide range of possibilities. With selecting the correct Carbon you can save a lot of money. We will gladly help you with this. At D&F Techniek you can order the quantity you request, starting from 1 kg up to 500 kg big bags.
