Low Cost Sustainable Activated Carbon

Low Cost Sustainable Activated Carbon

We have developed a low-cost method for producing activated carbon from renewable agricultural wastes. Activated carbon is a widely used material in the treatment of contaminated water and soils, recovering precious metals, and in medicinal applications. Traditional activated carbon is expensive (due to high production costs) and non-sustainable (using materials like coal and coconut shell). We want to change this. We offer customers low-cost activated carbon that is tailored for their application and produced here in Australia from Australian agricultural wastes. In addition, our process is carbon-negative as the agricultural wastes are converted into a stable form of carbon and takes them out of the short-term carbon cycle.
