Lignite Based Activated Carbon is produced by steam activation of lignite coal. This grade is specifically manufactured for applications requiring rapid adsorption rate in percolation columns. Lignite Based Activated Carbon is a general purpose granular carbon grade used in a variety of applications including purification of fine chemicals and food.
Lignite Based Activated Carbon is also available in powder form. Powder activated carbon is produced by steam activation of lignite coal. It is widely used in agriculture as a soil amendment to protect and enhance plant and turf grass growth and vigor. Also effectively removes organic toxins, such as herbicides, from soil to provide a safe environment for new or existing root systems.
