Global and China demand for carbon expected to rise to an estimated 2.10 million tons in 2021 – PR Newswire (press release)

·         As the public become increasingly aware of the harm caused by air and water pollution to health, the demand for activated carbon all over the world will continue to increase, approaching an estimated 2.10 million tons in 2021.

·         China, the world’s second largest consumer of activated carbon just behind the United States, needed about 440,000 tons in 2016, accounting for 26.7% of the global total.

·         Still in the stage of rapid development, the country will witness a continued increase in the application of activated carbon in industry, food & beverage, and sewage treatment with the demand for activated carbon nearing an estimated 600,000 tons in 2021.

·         Meanwhile, the country is also a big activated carbon producer (about 670,000 tons in 2016 and close to 900,000 tons as predicted in 2021).

·         Activated carbon, according to the material, can be divided into wood-based, coal-based, coconut shell-based, and nutshell-based ones.

·         China produced about 430,000 tons of coal-based activated carbon and over 200,000 tons of wood-based activated carbon in 2016.

Global demand for activated carbon was about 1.65 million tons in 2016, up 6.7% from a year ago, and recorded a CAGR of 6.3% during 2012-2016. As the public become increasingly aware of the harm caused by air and water pollution to health, the demand for activated carbon all over the world will continue to increase, approaching an estimated 2.10 million tons in 2021.

China, the world’s second largest consumer of activated carbon just behind the United States, needed about 440,000 tons in 2016, accounting for 26.7% of the global total. Still in the stage of rapid development, the country will witness a continued increase in the application of activated carbon in industry, food & beverage, and sewage treatment with the demand for activated carbon nearing an estimated 600,000 tons in 2021. Meanwhile, the country is also a big activated carbon producer (about 670,000 tons in 2016 and close to 900,000 tons as predicted in 2021).

Activated carbon, according to the material, can be divided into wood-based, coal-based, coconut shell-based, and nutshell-based ones. China produced about 430,000 tons of coal-based activated carbon and over 200,000 tons of wood-based activated carbon in 2016. Due to environmental protection and supply-side reform in the coal industry, the output of coal-based activated carbon will decline, while that of wood-based and coconut shell-based activated carbons will rise steadily.

Price: coconut shell-based activated carbon commands the highest price, above RMB10,000/t, compared with around RMB7,000/t for nutshell-based activated carbon and RMB5,000/t for coal-based activated carbon). The price of coconut shell-based activated carbon has begun falling since Jul 2016 because of enhanced supply capacity of coconut shell activated carbon enterprises and fiercer market competition.

Competitive landscape: among a large number of activated carbon producers in China, only a few have annual capacity of more than 10,000 tons. In 2016, Fujian Yuanli Active Carbon was the champion in the wood-based activated carbon field with a market share of over 20%, while Datong Coal Jinding Activated Carbon took the lead in the coal-based activated carbon field with a market share of over 15%.

The Chinese activated carbon market will feature the following:

I. Good prospects for activated carbon regeneration market, largely because: 1) mishandling of ineffective waste carbon will cause secondary pollution; 2) the costs of incineration and buying new carbon are far higher than that of activated carbon regeneration; 3) regenerated activated carbon produces only one-fifth of the carbon dioxide that the new activated carbon produces.

2. Market demand for coconut shell-based activated carbon continues to grow. Ever-growing environmental pollution increase the application of activated carbon in air and water purification fields. However, due to insufficient resources and stringent environmental protection, the demand for coal-based activated carbon trends down and thus provides certain space for growth in coconut shell-based activated carbon.

3. The application of activated carbon in environmental protection field will expand, typically, recovery of organic solvents, desulfurization & denitrification, adsorption & concentration and catalytic combustion of organic vapors, sewage treatment, deep purification, etc.

Study of In-Situ Treatment Using Powder Activated Carbon Demonstrates Minimal Short- and Long-Term Effects on … – Benzinga

ESTCP Project of the Year Evaluated Benthic Community Changes in Response to the AquaBlok’s AquaGate+PAC Amendment for Contaminated Sediments

(PRWEB) June 27, 2017

According to a recent report from the Environmental Security Technology Certification Program (ESTCP), powder activated carbon (PAC)-based materials do not have negative short- or long-term effects on benthic communities.

The ESTCP evaluated the benthic community at a site contaminated with polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs) located at the Puget Sound Naval Shipyard & Intermediate Maintenance Facility in Bremerton, Washing. Data was collected prior to application of the PAC-based material, AquaBlok, Ltd.’s AquaGate®+PAC product, as well as 10, 20, and 30 months after. The results showed no adverse impacts to the total abundance, taxa richness, species diversity, species evenness, species dominance, and percent abundance of the five most abundant taxa in the benthic community.

In addition, sediment profile image (SPI) surveys found no difference in the percent of stations with evidence of Stage 3 taxa in the initial, 10-month, and 21-month surveys (see photo). However, the percent of stations with Stage 3 taxa within the target area were lower in the 0.5- and 33-month surveys. While the cause of the reduction at the berthing area in the 33-month survey is unknown, it is believed to be related to physical disturbances caused by ship movement at the site, as the shipyard is an active Department of Defense (DoD) harbor. Further monitoring of the site will determine if this was the case.

Despite past studies questioning the potential negative impacts of PAC on benthic communities, this report proves otherwise. The product that was used, AquaGate®+PAC, is an aggregate core wrapped with PAC and a bentonite clay binder. The PAC material sorbs contaminants, like the PCBs found at the Bremerton site. This effectively reduces bioavailability and limits bioaccumulation of contaminants into the tissues of benthic invertebrates, such as mollusks and corals, and subsequently the food web.

According to the ESTCP report, a similar project at Hunters Point Shipyard in San Francisco Bay resulted in an 85-90% reduction in PCB bioaccumulation in benthic invertebrates. Also mentioned in the report is the Upper Canal Creek at the Aberdeen Proving Grounds in Maryland, where three activated carbon materials, including AquaGate®+PAC, were used. In that project, PCB bioavailability was reduced and no significant phytotoxicity or impact or species abundance was shown.

Water expert claims CFPUA can filter GenX out of water – WECT-TV6

NEW HANOVER COUNTY, NC (WECT) –

Robert Bowcock, who works side-by-side with environmental advocate Erin Brockovich and serves on her board’s foundation, has a long history with water treatment facilities and operations.

Bowcock founded Integrated Resource Management in California in 1997 after serving as a water utility manager as well as working for various water districts in California. He also worked for the U.S. Army Civil Affairs designing and constructing water distribution systems for the government.

Now Bowcock spends his time providing expert witness work to legal firms regarding water resource and management issues. Bowcock said city and county leaders from New Hanover County and Wilmington have been speaking with him over the last few weeks asking for advice on GenX, an unregulated chemical found in the Cape Fear River. 

Bowcock took part in the Cape Fear River Community forum Wednesday night via Skype.

“This is an extended chemical spill,” said Bowcock Wednesday by phone from his office in California. “Chemours should go to jail for this. They knew about it and still made the decision to discharge it.”

Chemours announced Tuesday that it will take additional steps to capture and dispose of all waste water containing GenX at its Fayetteville plant.

While many have said reverse osmosis is the only way to remove the chemical from the water, Bowcock says he knows another method that could remove GenX when the water is treated at CFPUA’s plant. 

“Contrary to what people have been talking about, this doesn’t require reverse osmosis to get out,” said Bowcock. He says CFPUA has a filter known as Bio-Gac, which, according to Bowcock, uses granular activated carbon to remove dissolved organics from drinking water.

Bowcock says CFPUA’s facility is set up to simply change the filter to an activated Bituminous Coal filter, which would remove Gen-x from the systems.  

“It would literally take no time to change these filters,” said Bowcock. “But, it will take months to come out of the river, even longer to come out of the pipes, distribution center or your houses,  where GenX is built up in sledge in your water heaters and every single appliance you own.”

Bowcock plans to come to Wilmington next week to continue to investigate and seek answers from officials.

“I’d like to get into Wilmington, roll up my sleeves and start helping,” Bowcock said. “CFPUA is the front line victim in all this, then it trickles down to the community, I don’t care if it’s ice cream in the water, it doesn’t belong in your water.”

A CFPUA spokesperson said they are working with an engineering firm, Black & Veatch, to determine available options to remove the chemical from the water. The spokesperson now says Bowcock’s suggestion of changing out the filter is one of the options being looked at by CFPUA leaders.
