Global Activated Carbon Market is expected to reach $10.2 billion and by 2024 growing at a CAGR of 9.0% from 2016 to 2024. Activated carbon is a type of carbon processed to have small and fewer amount of volume pores that increase the surface area offered for adsorption or else chemical reactions. It is also termed as activated charcoal. They are produced from source of carbonaceous materials, for example coal, nutshells, wood, coconuts, peat, and lignite. The prime raw material used for manufacturing of activated carbon is an organic material with a major carbon content. Activated carbon is typically derived from charcoal and is occasionally utilized as biochar. Those derived from coke and coal are referred as activated coke and activated coal respectively. They are widely used in air purification, gold purification, decaffeination, water purification, metal extraction, sewage treatment, medicine, air filters in respirators and gas masks, filters in compressed air and other applications.
