Many specialty carbons have been developed specifically as filter media for the POU/POE industry. For example, grades of activated carbon for the removal of taste and odour, chlorine, chloramines, THMs, and other contaminants. Silver impregnated carbons are also available for the control of bacteria growth within the filter.
Purification with carbon is a centuries-old technique, which in recent decades has become much more effective and economical through advanced production processes and chemical technology. Today, millions of tons of activated carbons are sold annually for uses ranging from air and water filtration to recovery of precious metals and industrial solvents.
