Secret of Activated Charcoal and Activated Carbon for Odor Elimination and Removal

Photo - charcoal1
Innofresh Activated Charcoal Products is a leading supplier of U.S. manufactured activated charcoal odor absorbers for the consumer and commercial markets.  Since 1992, we have provided superior activated charcoal odor absorbers for home, work, dorm, pet areas and automobiles and outdoor recreation from musty odors in cabinets and closets to power outage problems in refrigerators and freezers.   Our activated charcoal with VAC technology provides effective odor removal and elimination even from the toughest odor causing environments including outgassing, dead rodent odors, diaper pails, musty basements, college dorm rooms and office break rooms.  


Here are some of the more frequently asked questions about Activated Charcoal:

Photo activated carbon 2What 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.  For additional information about Innofresh Activated Charcoal, click on this link to our website page – What is Activated Charcoal?

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.

Regular Charcoal compared to Activated Charcoal for odor control….and, is it Safe?

Q & A Forum:
Here’s a question that we are often asked about how to get rid of various household odors. “Does activated charcoal (or activated carbon) really work better than regular charcoal briquettes used on the barbeque grill to absorb and eliminate odors?”

Activated Charcoal works much better but more importantly is the safety of not using ordinary barbeque charcoal.  Activated carbon or activated charcoal is actually special oxidized charcoal that has gone through a pretty extensive process which significantly increases the microscopic pores that attract and absorb odors.  Click here to learn more about activated charcoal at this link –   http://www.innofresh.com/activated-carbon/ To explain it even further, not all activated carbon is the same and this makes a significant difference in performance.   Our Innofresh and Fridge IT activated charcoal is made from the highest quality materials such as coconut shells compared with other products that use a lesser grade of materials.   This makes a difference in the end-product.

Safety – This is something very important. Another distinction is that, in addition to not being as “pure” or oxidized as activated carbon, charcoal briquettes generally have other chemicals added to them to bind and make them combust better for use in grills. This is another reason we do not recommend charcoal briquettes for eliminating odors to avoid cross contamination with chemicals.

Keep your charcoal briquettes for grilling and for a much more effective and safer way to eliminate odors, use activated carbon. Innofresh activated carbon with VAC technology utilizes a patented ventilated porous system to provide maximum odor absorption and elimination effectiveness.    This all adds up to superior odor control performance compared with other products.    For more information, please visit our web site at www.innofresh.com and learn more about our popular FRIDGE IT and Innofresh fragrance free activated carbon odor absorbers and how to use them effectively.
