Carbonix is an emerging Canadian Indigenous technology company that has developed a proprietary, environmentally friendly and disruptive process to manufacture customizable and lower cost activated carbon using secondary wood waste and un-merchantable timber as the primary feedstock.
We have been developing this process since 2011 and have been working with Trent University’s department of chemistry since 2013.
Typical uses are the purification of water, air, chemicals, oil and gas, food, beverages, pharmaceuticals and other liquids and gases, such the removal of mercury in flue gas streams.
The wide variety of industries that use activated carbon products are mature and established. New applications are also emerging, such as energy storage, examples of which are ultra capacitors and adsorbed natural gas storage tanks for motor vehicles.
