Enhanced Coconut Shell Carbon - a High Performance Alternative to Traditional Coal-based Carbons

Now Available On-Demand

Original Broadcast Time:  August 8, 2013, 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm Eastern

Webinar Overview:
Utilities now have the option of using a newly developed coconut shell carbon as an alternative to coal-based media. This webinar will address the advantages of AquaCarb CX Carbon from Siemens for disinfection by-product control, and removal of tastes and odors and halogenated organic contaminants from surface and ground waters. Performance data will be shared that makes a compelling economic case for the new carbon in many treatment applications based on achieving a longer bed life than coal-based carbon, and its ability to be reactivated and improve in performance over time.

Participants in this webinar earn one Professional Development Hour (PDH).
