Coconut based activated carbon
For flue gas treatment in Waste to energy (WtE) plants
Incineration of waste generates small amounts of highly toxic mercury, dioxins and furans. Traditionally the local WtE industry has used virgin HOK produced from German brown coal which is blown into the flue gas stream to adsorb and filter out the toxins.
Activated carbon from coconut shells is more efficient and is produced from waste-based and biological raw material.
30% less consumption, less carbon footprint, less nature footprint.
For drinking water treatment
Drinking water plants use activated carbon to remove unwanted taste, color and microtoxins from drinking water. Traditionally activated carbon produced from Chinese coal is used. The coal is regenerated and re-used once, then sent to landfill.
Replace by activated carbon from coconut shell is produced from wastebased and biological raw material. After regeneration and re-use at the drinking water plant, the material will be regenerated and re-used for other applications with a lower requirement. (industrial water treatment)
Less carbon footprint, less nature footprint, prolonged material lifetime (material is given a second use in other applications).
