White Paper: Activated Carbon Processing

This White paper will breakdown activated carbon and how the use of Torrefaction can mitigate any processing and handling issues.

Activated carbon is a form of charcoal with millions of tiny pores that increase its surface area, allowing greater adsorption and chemical reaction properties. This microporosity gives the active, or activated, material the ability adsorb specific substances or odors from gases or liquids. Just 0.035 ounces of activated carbon has the surface area of over 5300 square feet.
