Activated Carbon Production Cost Reports

Reports Available in Subscriptions

Activated Carbon is a solid composed mostly of carbon atoms, processed to have porous structure and a large internal surface area. Such unique characteristics confer adsorptive properties that makes Activated Carbon widely used in a range of liquid- and gas-phase applications.

Intratec offers professional, easy-to-understand reports examining Activated Carbon production. Each study describes an industrial plant, including main process units and site infrastructure, and presents an independent analysis of capital and operating costs. All reports are based on the most recent economic data available (Q2 2019).

You can find below reports focused on Activated Carbon production processes available in report subscriptions offered by Intratec.

Activated Carbon Production Process - Cost Analysis | Activated Carbon E11A

This report presents the economics of a typical steam activation process for Powdered Activated Carbon production from coconut shell in the USA. In the process examined, the coconut shells are crushed and then carbonized into a charcoal, which is activated by steam at high temperatures. The Activated Carbon is ground into powder of specified mesh size.

Activated Carbon Production from Coconut Shell - Cost Analysis | Activated Carbon E12A

This study approaches an economic analysis of a typical chemical activation process for Powdered Activated Carbon production from coconut shell in the USA. Phosphoric acid is used as chemical activation reagent. Activation is carried out concomitantly with carbonization, in a rotary kiln.
