Begg Cousland Envirotec have a close collaboration with Active Char Products Private Ltd., for activated carbon materials for the water industry. Whether it is for drinking water or effluent water, you can source materials through Begg Cousland Envirotec Ltd.


Activated carbon is used to reduce chlorine and certain organic compounds presents in the water. It can also remove dissolved radon, lead and taste and odour from drinking water. Removal of organics from chlorinated potable water is essential to prevent formation of trihalomethanes (THMs) – a class of carcinogens. Activated Carbon is used in point-of-entry (POE) and point-of-use (POU) filters to remove taste, odour and colour in drinking water.


Most industries in the world produce waste water that may contaminate the sources of water if it is released without treatment. In industrial waste water treatment process the contaminated water is treated with activated carbon. The high porosity and surface area makes the activated carbon the best known adsorbent in the world. Coconut shell based activated carbon has the special hardness and high surface area suitable for applications such as Process Effluent, Washing Effluent, Ground water Remediation, Mercury Removal etc. Non biodegradable toxic substances or pollutants are adsorbed well by Activated Carbon.
