Quick Reference

A highly absorbent carbon‐rich material, made from burnt wood, that is used to remove odours and toxic substances from liquid or gas emissions by absorbing the solutes onto the activated carbon. It is used, for example, to remove dissolved organic matter (including pesticides) and some inorganic solutes (including chlorine) from waste water. Also known as activated charcoal. See also granular activated carbon treatment.
