Coconut Shell Based Activated Carbon – A Real Alternate for Coal Based Heating
There are several disadvantages by the usage of coal in the domestic and industrial sector. Carbon dioxide is released by the burning of coal, a greenhouse gas which causes major global warming and climate change. It also creates respiratory problems to human beings. According to a recent research study, the consumption of coal in the industrial and domestic purpose increases the level of carbon dioxide in the air. Coal carbon also creates dust nuisance in the air. The consumption of coal generally generates a several waste products, which are bottom ash, fly ash, flue gas desulfurization sludge, that also contain uranium, mercury, arsenic, thorium, and other heavy metals. Most of the coal-fired power plants which are without any effective fly ash capture are one of the largest sources of human-caused radiation exposure in the environment. Coal-fired power plant releases a large emission which includes selenium, mercury, and arsenic that are really harmful to the environment and human health.
Therefore the coconut products, mainly shell based carbon, is a real alternate for coal based heating. Activated carbon, also popularly known as activated coal or activated charcoal is a kind of carbon which has been manufactured to make it extremely porous and therefore have a very large surface area available for chemical reactions or adsorption. The activated carbon is the key raw material used for the purification of water sources and removal of organic substances. It is generally used in space suits for air cleaning too. There is a growing demand for powder activated carbon, activated carbon fibers and coconut shell charcoal in the global market from activated carbon suppliers. In the medical field, coconut shell powder is used in medicine to treat poisonings, for precious metal recovery, to distill alcoholic beverages and in gas purification.
As it is derived from organic substances such as coconut shells, coconut shell carbon is widely used in various environmental applications like spill cleanup and capturing volatile compounds from painting and dry cleaning. In order to get good quality coconut shell charcoal and coconut shell carbon, the manufacturing concerns use fully dried, clean, mature coconut palm shells on the instruction of their suppliers to meet the market demand. The granular carbon is always preferred for adsorption of gases and vapors as their rate of diffusion is faster. The activated carbons pellets are made especially for use in vapor applications in industries. The carbon fibers too. Aquarium charcoal or activated carbon is used as a water filter in fish aquariums. carbon pellets is made especially for use in a vapor applications. The product is highly double screened and DE-dusted in the normal process and prior to packaging to assure a very clean, dust free product and hard with long service lifespan.
