The use of carbon in the form of charcoal has been used for many applications. Even in Hindu documents dating from 450 BC charcoal filters are mentioned for the treatment of water. Charred wood, bones and coconut charcoals were used during the 18th and 19th century… Continue Reading
We know pollutants affect our lungs. Similarly, it’s fairly simple to see how air pollution could be connected to problems involving the bloodstream, since pollutants enter it through the respiratory system. However, two new studies show links between air pollution… Continue Reading
By focusing on atmosphere and wellbeing, our smoke cabins are building bridges between smokers and non-smokers allowing them to interact.
The benefits are plentiful. Producing clean air and eliminating passive smoking are only the main benefits. Other great benefits include time savings and cost reductions from shortened smoke breaks to better energy efficiency. Added to this are improved safety and fireproofing.
After three years of testing and a total of 115 hours of research, including personal barbecuing experience, I’m convinced that coconut BBQ charcoal is the best charcoal for your grill. This charcoal burns hotter, lasts longer, and produces less ash than… Continue Reading
Activated carbon units are commonly used to remove organics, such as odors, micropollutants, from drinking water at centralized and decentralized level. At centralized level, they are generally part of one of the last steps, before the water is fed into… Continue Reading
AC filters used for home water treatment contain either granular activated carbon (GAC) or powdered block carbon. Although both are effective, block AC filters appear to be more effective in removing chlorine, taste and halogenated organic compounds. The amount of… Continue Reading
When it comes to grilling, you will probably hear different recommendations. Some will tell you to use a gas grill only; others will tell you that the briquette is the best way to go. Despite different beliefs, one thing we… Continue Reading
Home AC treatment systems are quite straightforward. The AC is normally packaged in filter cartridges inserted into the treatment device. Water needing treatment passes through the cartridge, contacting the AC on its way to the faucet. AC filters eventually become… Continue Reading
Compared to ten years ago, most American cities are less polluted than they were. Yet, levels of particle pollution have remained largely unaffected – and remain high enough to cause troubles. Since particles are so incredibly small, they are easily inhaled… Continue Reading
Historically charcoal was first used to control wound odours. Charcoal powder was sprinkled directly on foul putrefying wounds as far back as 1500 BC. With more knowledge is now known about activated carbon, this tiny porous substance has now been… Continue Reading
Air pollution is a severe problem, but unfortunately, it doesn’t get the attention it deserves. It kills more people than malaria and AIDS combined. One significant source of air pollution is burning diesel fuel, especially in older rigs that don’t benefit… Continue Reading
