Activated carbon products available in the form of granules, pellets, and powder are sometimes difficult to handle. Therefore, the development and use of activated carbon cloths and fibers have gained popularity. In addition,
these activated carbon cloths and fibers have other advantages in terms of cost and potential applications. Several industries are adopting them for use in solvent recovery, catalyzing reactions, point-of-use filters for air and water purification, and metal reinforcing applications.
