Retention of organic pollutants
MICRO is an activated carbon that is produced with the basic properties to fulfill these functions, at a very competitive price. It is made from coconut shell and is thermally activated in a reducing atmosphere, saturated with water vapor.
The above gives this coal three fundamental qualities to be used for water purification:
a) The raw material is of vegetable origin, and therefore does not contain the heavy metals and other pollutants typically present in mineral coals.
b) When thermally activated, no chemical compounds are used that can leave residues on the coal.
c) Coconut shell charcoal has the pore diameter that most efficiently adsorbs low molecular weight organic pollutants, which tend to be the most harmful to humans.
