       Some of Activated Carbon Application Examples

Activated carbon has been historically used for removal of odor, removal of color pigments and various catalytic functions. However, applications of activated carbon have increased significantly in the recent years with the advancement of activated carbon process capability. The applications can be classified into two categories: gas phase and liquid phase.
