Charcoal Briquettes

Charcoal Briquettes

Cavron’s Coconut Charcoal Briquettes are of an extremely high quality and are 100% natural. We do not use any artificial chemicals in our products. The granulated charcoal is mixed with our all-natural tapioca starch to bind the charcoal briquettes – a 100% food grade product made from the plant Manihot Esculenta.

Our BBQ briquettes are based on our high-quality carbon granulate from carbonised coconut shells and offer a superior green alternative to regular wood charcoal and fossilised coal. The use of our briquettes is primarily as a fuel source for barbecuing. In other words, with Cavron Coconut Charcoal Briquettes you will know what you are grilling with – we guarantee that our charcoal is clean without any unhealthy, badly tasting chemicals.

Vapor Phase Granular Activated Carbon

granullar activated charcoal

Vapor phase Granular Activated Charcoal (GAC) is a treatment technology that removes contaminants from air. Contaminated air is passed through one or more vessels containing GAC. Contaminants stay onto the surfaces of the activated carbon grains. The thermal processing of carbon, often from coconut shells, creates small porous particles with a large internal surface area. This processing activates the carbon. The activated carbon attracts and adsorbs organic molecules as well as certain metal and inorganic molecules. When the concentration of contaminants in the vapor exceeds a certain level, the carbon must be replaced.


Limitations and Concerns

  • Some degradation products such as vinyl chloride and smaller molecules are not sorbed well, and consequently must be monitored carefully.
  • All spent carbon eventually needs to be disposed in landfills or regenerated. There are few regeneration facilities.
  • The carbon used for some contaminants (g.,metals) can not be regenerated.
  • Relative humidity greater than 50% can reduce carbon capacity
  • Some compounds, such as ketones, may cause carbon bed fires because they release heat upon adsorption.



This technology is used to treat off-gas contaminats with VOCs and some fuels.
