Here are some of the more frequently asked questions about Activated Charcoal:
What is Activated Charcoal?
Activated charcoal is a highly porous, natural material that attracts and removes organic chemicals and gas from the environment. It is manufactured by burning various carbon materials, such as wood, coconut shells and other organic material in a specialized oxidation - oxygen free process that results in literally, millions of microscopic pores and cracks inside the carbon that provides an enormous amount of interior and exterior surface area in which odor molecules are attracted to and neutralized.
What is the difference between Activated Charcoal and Activated Carbon?
Actually, there is not any difference. Both of these terms can be used interchangeably and are synonymous with each other.
What can Activated Charcoal remove?
Activated charcoal is used in many fields including water treatment and medical devices to eliminate various organic pollutants from the water and the air including some toxic chemicals including VOC’s such as benzene and some other oils. At Innofresh, we use this amazing material to create superior carbon filters for elimination of household, pet and car odors including smoke, food, animal, musty and other unwanted odors.

Is there a difference between regular charcoal briquettes used for barbeque grills and activated charcoal for odor elimination?
The answer to this is a big “YES”. And, even more importantly is the safety of not using ordinary barbeque charcoal for odor control. Activated charcoal or activated carbon goes through an extensive process which significantly increases the microscopic pores that attract and eliminate odors. To explain it further, not all activated charcoal is the same and this makes a difference in performance. Our activated charcoal filters are made from high quality materials and undergo a porous binding process that eliminates black powder and small particles common to most activated charcoal.
Safety – Another important distinction is that, in addition to not being “pure” or oxidized as activated charcoal, charcoal briquettes generally have other chemicals added to them to make them combust better for use in grills. So, keep your charcoal briquettes for grilling and use activated charcoal specifically made for odor elimination for a safer, more effective way to eliminate odors.
