The Actocarbone and anticromos range of activated carbon is made from wood sourced from reneawable forests in foret des landes France. This exceptional raw material and Calgon’s mastery of the manufacturing process produces the world’s best carbon for adsorption in the pharmaceutical, food and beverage sectors and also process for fine chemistry. Due to their highly developed macroporosity, phosphoric acid activated carbon is highly recommended for decolourization and steam activated ones for odour and removal of colour precursors. These specialized carbon are used for decolorization and purification of amino acids, organic acids, caffeine, enzymes, ggelatine, yeast extracts, sweeteners, starch hydroxylates. In the chemical industries acticarbone is used for organic acids, alcohol and esters. They are also commonly used in the pharmaceutical industries for manufacturing amino acids, analgesics, antibiotics, lactose and vitamins. These products comply to USP, FCC, codex oenologique.
