Wide Range of Applications of Activated Carbon Drives Its Prospects

Studies expanding the understanding of the characterization of activated carbon has helped spur a range of applications in the activated carbon market. The material, also called activated charcoal, is usually characterized by a large adsorption capacity. Manufacturers use a range of carbonization techniques to produce a range of activated carbons—distinct in form and properties—thereby making them suitable for specific applications.

Advances in metallurgical processes for recovery of precious metals have fueled the utilization of activated carbon. Its affinity for metal–cyanide compounds drives its use in removal of cyanides when they are present at low levels. The growing demand for activated carbon in decolorizing wine or removing off-odors has helped the market to present substantial revenues to players.           

Water Treatment Application to See Substantial Uptake

The activated carbon market has been increasingly benefitting from the rising application of it in water treatment. Stimulated activated carbons are good at adsorbing heavy metals, notably nickel, copper, iron, cobalt, chromium, due to their greater surface area, chemical complexity of their external area, and marked micro-porous ability.

Use of Pyrolysis of Organic Materials to Produce Activated Carbon Growing

The growing trend of converting waste materials into useful materials is one of the prominent trend imparting a marked momentum to the expansion of the activated carbon market. This stems from the growing adoption of processes of pyrolysis of organic materials, mainly of plant origin.

Manufacturers focus on improving the metal binding capacity of activated charcoal.  In recent years, new opportunities have emerged for manufacturers from the growing demand of activated charcoal in the agriculture industry, where it finds usage in soil amendment chemical. The use helps growers in maintaining the correct soil pH and also help in retaining macro-nutrients, such as in maize plants.
