Activated carbon as a kind of effective adsorbent finds wide application in water
treatment, food & beverage, metallurgy, chemical, pharmaceutical and automotive

In 2013, the capacity of activated carbon across the globe outnumbered 2 million
tons/a, as opposed to the demand approximating 1.3 million tons/a, which was an indicative
of severe overcapacity. Thus, a grim situation to integrate or eliminate capacities is
expected to linger in the future. On a global basis, activated carbon capacity largely
concentrates in a few of countries or regions including the U.S., Japan, Western Europe
and China. In particular, the capacities in the United States, Japan and Western Europe
are dominated by a small number of industrial players, such as America-based Calgon Carbon
Corporation with activated carbon capacity over 75,000 tons/a, and Cabot Norit with the
capacity of 60,000 tons/a. Others included Japan-based Osaka Gas Chemicals Co., Ltd. which
was promoted to the world’s third largest activated carbon producer through taking over
Jacobi Carbons in October 2013. Also, Osaka Gas Chemicals has grown into the largest
producer in cocoanut active charcoal market segment.

China boasts the world’s largest manufacturer of activated carbon, with the estimated
capacity in 2013 approximating 700,000 tons. In the market segment, China is also regarded
as the largest wooden activated carbon marker in the world, where there are numerous
wooden activated carbon producers, but most of them are small-scaled enterprises with
annual capacity between several hundreds of tons and thousands of tons. And few can
realize the capacity breaking 10,000 tons. The production bases of wooden activated carbon
are mostly founded in Fujian, Jiangxi, Zhejiang, Jiangsu and other regions with abundant
forest resources, and the leading manufacturers cover Fujian Yuanli Active Carbon, Xinsen
Carbon, and Zhixing Activated Carbon, the combined capacity of which claims 95,000 tons/a.
