How is Activated Charcoal Made?

Activated charcoal begins as regular charcoal and is then “activated” with oxidizing gases, such as steam or air, at high temperatures. This oxidative process further erodes the char-coal’s internal surfaces. This increases its adsorption capacity by creating an internal network of even smaller pores rendering it two to three times as effective as regular charcoal. But charcoal is not produced from wood alone. Bone char, coconut shells, peat, coal, petroleum coke, and sawdust are the most common starting materials for making activated charcoal. Many other materials have been experimented with, but generally are not as economical. -

The Steps to Life food grade activated charcoal range is produced from the coconut tree.
