Wood Base Activated Carbon

Pine wood base activated carbon is a type of macroporous adsorbent, which has many advantages over other types of activated carbon and is used in various industries around the world mainly as a decolorizer. This type of carbon is mainly used for decolorization, purification and decontamination in various specialized applications.

These individualities make it an ideal choice for many applications.

Uses of wood activated carbon:

  • Drinking water purification.
  • Surface and waste water treatment.
  • Discoloration of wines, juices, vinegars, food and beverages.
  • Pharmaceutical industry.
  • Purification and decolorization of edible oils.

Wood activated carbon is manufactured from natural raw materials, pine wood, sawdust and bamboo.

Wood activated carbon is characterized by being particularly pure and suitable for demanding applications. Thanks to its highly developed macroporosity, chemically activated carbon with phosphoric acid is widely recommended for decolorization. On the other hand, vapor-physically activated carbon is particularly effective for removing unwanted color precursors and odors.

It can be widely used in the chemical industry of colored water treatment, petroleum industry (such as refinery furnace desulfurization), sugar industry (to remove ash content and volatile matter), pharmaceutical industry (removal of drug degradation products) and other fields.

Wood-based activated carbon is a highly effective material used for the purification of water and other liquids. It is produced using selected types of wood and sawdust, which are then subjected to activation by steam or phosphoric acid. The resulting product is characterized by its high surface area, which can vary from 1500 to 2500 m2/g.

Most of the pores in charcoal using wood as raw material are meso- and macro-sized, which makes it the ideal material for decolorization of liquids and water. This type of carbon is commonly used in surface water and wastewater filters to remove organic impurities. In addition, it is highly effective in removing larger molecular structures such as MIB and Geosmin, which can cause unpleasant tastes and odors in drinking water.

Wood-based activated carbon is an incredibly versatile material that can be used in a variety of forms, such as granular, pellet and powder. Its high surface area makes it an efficient and cost-effective solution for water and liquid purification.
