Wood activated carbon is manufactured by the steam activation process of wood products such as saw dust, wood chips, and wood flour. Activated carbon derived from wood has high porosity and defined internal structure. Furthermore, good mechanical strength and density are other important attributes of wood activated carbon. Thus, wood activated carbon is widely used as an adsorbent to treat polluted water and air.
