Carboactivation

TOBASA – with its own technology – manufactures the activated carbon from the endocarp of babassu coconut, which is considered a noble raw material because of its intrinsic high hardness, which technically makes it possible to obtain high activation rates. This ecological activated carbon, with a large surface area of adsorption (700 to 1,200 m²/g), is constituted of micropores and mesopores essentially, maintaining – after the activation process – high hardness and an excellent resistance to abrasion. These characteristics make it particularly suitable, within other innumerous applications, for dynamic water treatment systems and industrial filters for water dechlorination and – especially – in residential filters and purifiers.
