  • What is Activated Carbon?

    Adsorption with activated carbon can apply. The more awareness people have of the Earth, the more applications activated carbons will have. is thus a commonly seen process in applications such as gas masks, space capsules, nuclear plants and so forth, in which the removal of gases is highly needed. ...

  • Activated Carbon Applications Excel at PCB Removal

    TIGG’s GAC adsorption equipment is used to remove PCBs from groundwater. For more than 50 years, polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs) were commonly used in industrial materials including, caulking, cutting oils, inks, paints and as dielectric fluids in electrical equipment such as transformers and capacitors. Concerns over health effects led to a North American ban of ...

  • Investigation of removal of N–nitrosamines and their precursors in water treatments using activated carbon nanoparticles

    N–nitrosamines have been detected in various water types. A strategy for removal of this group of compounds should be taken to reduce the health risks for humans. In this study, a fast and sensitive LC–MS/MS method was developed for quantitative analysis of nine N–nitrosamines and four precursors in a single sample. The Method Detection Limits (MDLs) in natural water ranged from ...

  • Adsorption kinetics and diffusion of Saxitoxins on granular-activated carbon: influence of pore size distribution

    Saxitoxin (STX) is the most toxic non-protein substance known. STX-producing cyanobacteria have been identified in most continents and are being detected more widely because of global warming, threatening human drinking water supplies worldwide. Removal of these components can be accomplished by adsorption on granular-activated carbon (GAC) but little is yet known about the kinetics of the ...

  • Wet hydrogen peroxide catalytic oxidation of phenol with FeAC (iron-embedded activated carbon) catalysts

    This investigation aims at exploring the catalytic oxidation activity of iron-embedded activated carbon (FeAC) and the application for the degradation of phenol in the wet hydrogen peroxide catalytic oxidation (WHPCO). FeAC catalysts were prepared by pre-impregnating iron in coconut shell with various iron loadings in the range of 27.5 to 46.5% before they were activated. The FeAC catalysts were ...

  • Worldwide Activated Carbon Market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 13.3% from 2014 to 2020: Grand View Research, Inc

    The global market for activated carbon is expected to reach USD 5,305.0 million by 2020, according to a new study by Grand View Research, Inc. Increasing activated carbon applications for mercury removal in coal-fired power plants, coupled with MATS regulatory standards set by the EPA and similar regulations by REACH is expected to drive activated carbon demand over the next six years. ...


  • Hydrocarbon evaporative emissions & control for automotives

    Even the cleanest and most efficient vehicle on the market today still pollutes the air and otherwise damages the environment. Motor vehicles emit several noxious pollutants which vehicle emissions standards are designed to regulate. Vehicles generally emit Hydrocarbons (HC), Carbon monoxide (CO), Nitrogen oxides (NOx) and Fine airborne particulate matter (PM) as pollutants that require control. ...

  • TVOC measurement for LEED/green building evaluation

    Total Volatile Organic Compounds (TVOC) may be evaluated when building designers/managers are pursuing the Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design Green Building Rating System for New Construction (LEED-NC) EQ Credit 3.2. The latest LEED-NC guidance document specifies that the maximum allowed concentration of TVOC measured in a building (post construction, pre-occupancy) is 500 µg/m3; the ...
