Our history began in Guadalajara, Jalisco, in 1988, with the installation of the first coconut shell charcoal activation plant in North America. When Carbotecnia was established in 2003, we were already exporting to Europe and South America, and we were manufacturing special activated carbons, such as: bacteriostatic, surface modified, ingestible and ultrapure.
After filtration (retention of solids present in a fluid), adsorption on activated carbon is the second most used fluid purification operation by humans, so the company has been researching, developing and offering engineering for these purposes.
The most frequent application of activated carbon is water purification, so in 2004 we entered the field of engineering and sales of plants, equipment and supplies for drinking water purification and process water production. The latter are those that require particular parameters, such as in the chemical, agricultural, pharmaceutical and semiconductor industries, among others.
Since its inception, the company’s strategy has been to provide the best possible technical support and technical training to our customers, in order to work with them, and in a co-responsible manner, to solve their problems or achieve their purification goals.
In addition, since 2006 we have sought to become a truly socially responsible company. This is not only to give it added value and to make it a place of fulfillment for those who relate to it (its own personnel, suppliers, customers and the surrounding community), but also as an essential part of a strategy of competitiveness and permanence.
