Air Purification

Pollutants released into the air are detrimental to human health. It is estimated that nine out of ten human beings breath air that exceeds the WHO’s guideline limits for pollutants. Air pollution affects the human body in several ways. The type of pollutant and the length of exposure has a cumulative effect on an individual’s health. Emissions from cars and trucks, incinerators, power plants, and factories can trigger asthma attacks in children. Tiny particles of airborne soot particles and gases can penetrate the lungs and worsen bronchitis, leading to heart attack or hasten death due to long-term exposure of the fine particulate matter. MFAR Activated Carbon plays a major role in ensuring clean air and adherence to the emission standards set by various governing bodies.


MFAR Carbon for
Air & Industrial Gas Treatments

It is now imperative for industries to install systems to prevent contamination of the atmosphere and creating serious damage to the ecosystem. The most effective way to tackle the issue of gaseous industrial impurities is Activated Carbon. It is effective in keeping odor under control and ensuring that the gaseous emissions do not exceed the VOC emissions standards prescribed by regulators.

Gaseous emissions can happen from various sources including:

  • Waste treatment plants
  • Water treatment plants
  • Venting storage tanks or reactors
  • Plants manufacturing chemical intermediates
  • Paint, chemical/petrochemical products manufacture
  • Air filters
  • Pressure Swing adsorption

MFAR Carbon for
Industrial Gas treatment

Toxic fumes and hazardous gases from industrial processes pose a challenge to the environment. Many countries have stringent standards set to curb the release of such gases

MFAR Carbon offers a range of activated carbon both as virgin as well as impregnated carbon to meet the regulatory requirements – including for:

  • Mercury vapor and treatment of other industrial waste gases
  • Toxic gases from incinerator systems - Dioxins, Furans, and volatile Mercury.

These surface modified carbons along with unique impregnations - offer the dual adsorption mechanism of physisorption and chemisorption. These make MFAR Carbon superior in terms and quality and performance.


MFAR Carbon for
Flue Gas Treatment

Municipal and City-based solid waste management systems utilize incinerators for disposing off:

  • Medical waste
  • Clinical waste
  • Industrial waste
  • Hazardous wastes

Hazardous chemicals emitted from these systems pose a serious threat to public health and the environment.

Gases from incinerators that need to be controlled and eliminated discharging to the atmosphere are:

  • Dioxins
  • Furans
  • Volatile Mercury
  • Other heavy metals

MFAR Carbon offers effective solutions for the treatment of flue gas emissions to remove low concentrations of such pollutants.

Our powdered activated carbon has the optimum pore size and adsorption capabilities to control the emissions.


MFAR Carbon for
Industrial waste gases

  • Non-Methyl Hydrocarbons (NMHC)
  • Phenols and Bis-Phenol A (BPA)


MFAR Carbon for
Mercury Vapor Removal

As coal is the major source of energy generation, the emission of mercury vapor from thermal plants is a major issue. Much stringent legislation enacted since 2009 by major economies like the USA aim to curb the mercury emissions that threaten humans.

MFAR Carbon offers Powdered Activated Carbons (PAC) that can be effectively be used in systems that are installed for the removal of Mercury from gas streams in thermal plants.

MFAR Carbon for
Solvent Recovery

Chemical industries use solvents in their process which can evaporate easily under normal conditions. To make the process cost-effective and recover the solvents to reduce the consumption of solvents, the effective way is to use MFAR Carbons.

MFAR Carbon can help recover:

  • Acetone
  • Cyclohexane
  • Carbon disulfide

These solvents are absorbed by the carbon’s lattice pores. They can be easily desorbed under pressure steam to be reused in the production cycle.
