Calgon Carbon has been recycling for years – with its program for reactivation of spent activated carbon. After an activated carbon’s adsorptive capacity has been exhausted, it can be returned to Calgon Carbon for thermal reactivation. With high temperature reactivation followed by off-gas treatment, the adsorbed organic chemicals are destroyed and reactivated carbon can be safely and cost-effectively recycled back to facilities for continued use. A significant benefit of reactivation and recycle is that the CO2 footprint associated with reactivation is significantly lower than that associated with the production, supply and use of virgin activated carbon. With carbon reactivation facilities in the United States, Europe and Asia, Calgon Carbon makes it easy to go green!
