Development Analysis Of Activated Carbon Industry
Activated carbon is a general designation of carbon materials with developed pore structure, large specific surface area, rich surface chemical groups and strong specific adsorption capacity.
As an irreplaceable adsorption material, the application field and demand of activated carbon will continue to expand and grow. However, throughout the industry, there are still some problems, such as low concentration, small plant scale, low access threshold, relatively backward equipment and so on. The activated carbon industry is facing the challenges of increasingly stringent requirements for environmental protection, energy conservation and emission reduction and rising labor costs.
The most extensive and traditional application field of activated carbon is used as adsorbent. Its specific application fields include food industry, pharmaceutical industry, drinking water purification, wastewater treatment, gas purification, chemical smelting and other application fields. In general, it can be divided into liquid phase adsorption and gas phase adsorption. At the same time, activated carbon is often used as catalyst and catalyst carrier; In addition, activated carbon has also been developed as a storage medium for high energy density substances and electric energy in recent years, and has been applied in many emerging fields such as natural gas adsorption and electric energy storage.
At present, the activated carbon industry is developing towards a new industrial industry with high scientific and technological content, low resource consumption, less environmental pollution, high product added value and full play of human resources. Most backward enterprises are facing the situation of integration or elimination. From production to function, activated carbon is in line with the national development concept of low-carbon, green and circular economy, and has great prospects in various environmental protection fields.
