Carbon Recycling & Reactivation

The Process:

Activated Carbon Disposal

Furnaces reactivate the carbon using a high-temperature process, known as “thermal reactivation”. This process destroys organic material adsorbed onto the carbon, and it restores the essential pore structure so that the carbon can be re-used.

The Benefits:

  • Reactivation and recycling of activated carbon lowers the CO2 footprint (carbon footprint) when compared to the production and transport of new carbon
  • Reactivation offers reduction of waste because the waste disposal of activated carbon is largely eliminated
  • Carbon Reactivation offers a substantial cost saving compared with new activated carbon
