Region : Global | Report ID: FBI105330 | Status : Ongoing



Wood activated carbon or wood-based activated carbon is obtained from selective type of wood and sawdust. This type of activated carbon is produced by phosphoric acid activation or steam activation. The macro and meso pores in the wood activated carbon help in decoloration of liquids and water. It is highly employed for water treatment, surface and wastewater treatment, food and beverages decoloration and other applications.

Growing demand for wood activated carbon for water treatment attributed to its non-toxicity, lower carbon content, high porosity, lower content of impurities and others is expected to drive the market growth. Several economies are facing the issue of lack of clean drinking water and water pollution. Increase in water-purification activities in such economies shall aid market growth. Moreover, stringent regulations imposed by government organizations regarding the concentration of inorganic salts and disinfectants in drinking water shall significantly drive demand for wood activated carbon.
