Activated carbon (activated charcoal) is a crude form of graphite. Its pore structure gives the carbon its very large surface area which allows the carbon to adsorb a wide range of compounds. Activated carbon has strong physical absorption forces, and a very high volume of adsorbing porosity.
Chemviron Carbon is the largest supplier of granular activated carbon to the water industry worldwide.
Cwenga Technologies and Chemviron Carbon have a working relationship going back to 1980. In 2001 Cwenga Technologies was appointed as sole agent of the full Chemviron Carbon range in Southern Africa.
