Gases with odors, chemicals and compounds that can lead to health and environmental hazards are constantly emitted by manufacturing and chemical processing facilities. Our coconut based Activated Carbon products absorb toxins such as mercury, hydrogen sulfide, chlorine and other undesirable contaminants in the air. These air pollutants are covered under the US Clean Air Act.
By far the most dramatic and early application of coconut charcoal was in world war I, used by Soldiers as gas masks to protect against chemical attack using Chlorine, Phosgene and mustard gases. These gas masks were made of Charcoal (Activation was still to come) prepared by carbonizing coconut shell. It’s reported that several thousand lives were saved using these gas masks.
Our Activated Carbon products remove chlorine with little degradation or damage to the carbon.
