Our core-competency is the manufacture of premier specialized activated carbons for gas and liquid phase treatments across a multitude of industries. Other associated carbons and related specialty products are our secondary areas of strength. Our products find applications across a diverse range of industries: domestic water purification, effluent water treatment, air treatment, respiratory protection, chemical processing, petrochemical refineries, nuclear technology, fertilizers, food, beverage, and solvent recovery etc.

Established in 1983, we are a privately held enterprise in Hyderabad, India. We are early entrants to the activated carbon space in India, and continue to develop innovative products for environmental and non-environmental applicability. We are able to consistently deliver on our high quality products because of our strong production and quality control standards, and our stringent commitment to customer satisfaction. Our differentiation lies in our ability to convey significant cost advantages to our customers, which we gain from our preferential location and manufacturing efficiencies.

Water Treatment

Globally, the drinking water industry is responding to new developments and increased regulations. Microbial removal, treatment of inorganic contaminants, disinfection byproduct control, and improved analytical methods that can detect potentially harmful contaminants at part-per-trillion levels add to increased demands on water treatment. This, without escalating costs.

Activated carbon water treatment technologies offer effective, cost-efficient, and environmentally benign solutions to address key potable and groundwater treatment requirements.

Liquid Process Purification

Due to their high adsorption capacities and other functionalities including chemical reduction, catalysis, and carrier of biomass and chemical, activated carbons are widely used in many industrial separations.

Activated carbons prove effective in the chemical, refinery, food, and pharmaceutical industries to treat raw ingredients and finished products, especially in the removal of organic contaminants.

Acid Gas Removal

Removal of corrosive and toxic inorganic compounds in the vapor phase is effectively brought about by simple physical adsorption aided by chemisorption. Impregnated activated carbons are carbonaceous adsorbents which have chemicals finely distributed on their internal surface. The impregnation optimizes the existing properties of the activated carbon giving a synergism between the chemicals and the carbon.

Our impregnated activated carbons assist with removal of odorous sulphur compounds in sewage pumping stations, personal protection respirators, and removal of corrosive gases from air intake systems—specifically in electronics manufacturing facilities, museums etc.

Ammonia Removal

Our AMSORB-I and AMSORB-II product categories are designed for removal of ammonia and it’s derivatives from air and gas streams.

Mercury Removal

Mercury and its compounds are cumulative toxins that are harmful to most forms of life even when taken in very small amounts. It’s unique properties allow widespread applications across the paper and pulp industry, chemical processors, agricultural industries, specialized battery producers, and chloroalkali manufacturers. It is also found naturally in coal—which is released on burning in power plants and heat generators, in oxygenated waters—which eventually accumulates in fish, and in air and natural gas. Activated carbons are an excellent solution to control the widespread discharge of elemental mercury and its salts.

Nuclear Grade Applications

Nuclear technology involves several operations, the more important being the production of nuclear fuels, processing of spent fuels, and operation of nuclear reactors. All these operations require a thorough purification of the exhaust and circulating gas. Because many of these processes involve inert gases or radioactive gases, their removal can best be carried out by activated carbon adsorption.

Respiratory/Military Applications

Whetlerite carbons are Cu, Cr and Ag impregnated activated carbons used for respiratory protection against nerve, blister, blood and choking agents in the military. Whetlerite carbons are used in nuclear, biological and chemical (NBC) filters for collective protection, and in NBC canisters, as part of individual gas masks, for personal protection.

Formaldehyde Removal

Formaldehyde and other aldehydes are the main pollutants in indoor air. Formaldehydes are mainly obtained from paint, polymerizing plates, bindings, chemical fibers and even cigarette smoke. Being toxic, a high concentration of formaldehyde can cause symptoms such as headache and nausea, and may lead to lung cancer. Activated carbon adsorbents are the most promising adsorbents when adsorption of traces of gases and vapors is concerned.

Our impregnated activated carbons offer effective chemisorption of formaldehyde from air.

Desulfurization

Sulfur dioxide is the major air pollutant obtained from the combustion of fossil fuels. Exhaust gases from several industrial and production units where coal or sulfide ores are used, contain sulfur-containing toxic gases and vapors such as sulfur dioxide, hydrogen sulfide, carbon disulfide, and several organosulfur compounds. These industrial gases need to be desulfurized effectively before mixing with the environment. While protecting the environment from pollution, commercial benefits in terms of recovery of a valuable component, sulfur, can also be derived with the use of activated carbons.

Activated carbons are promising adsorbents for SO2 and sulfur-containing toxic gas removal due to their high efficiency and regenerative capacity.
