Wood-based Activated Carbon

From the heart of the largest industrial pine forest in Europe comes premium activated wood carbon, Acticarbone® and Anticromos®.

Acticarbone® and Anticromos®

Chemviron’s activated carbons from renewable raw materials marketed under the brand names Acticarbone® and Anticromos® are known for their exceptional capacity for adsorption and filtration. Acticarbone® and Anticromos® activated carbon, powder or granular, are used for decolorization, purification and decontamination. Wood based activated carbon are particularly pure and suited to specialty applications. Thanks to the highly developed macroporosity, phosphoric acid chemically activated carbon is highly recommended for decolorization. Steam physically activated carbon is particularly effective in eliminating color precursors and unwanted odors.

Acticarbone® and Anticromos® are used in a wide range of markets, including:
• food and beverage
• environment
• energy
• chemicals
• pharmaceuticals

All of our products meet the certifications required by various markets (ISO 9001, Kosher and halal certificates, etc.).


Heart of the Forest

The Parentis-en-Born (France) production plant produces activated carbon from wood.

Its two manufacturing plants make it a unique site:
• Production plant for physically (steam) activated carbon
• Production plant for chemically (phosphoric acid) activated carbon

Landes pine transformed by Chemviron’s processes imparts first-rate physico-chemical properties to activated carbon:
• High porosity
• Large adsorption capacity
• Permeability
• Purity
