Navi Mumbai, India (PressExposure) May 31, 2014 -- Bharat Book Bureau presents the new report, on "World Activated Carbon" This industry report, World Activated Carbon, presents historical demand data for 2003, 2008 and 2013, plus forecasts for 2018 and 2023 by type, application, world region, and for 18 countries.
World demand to rise 7.9% annually through 2018
World demand for activated carbon is projected to rise 7.9 percent per year to 2.2 million metric tons in 2018. Tightening regulatory standards, particularly in the two largest markets -- the US and China -- will drive growth. In the US and other industrialized countries, the stricter standards will reflect increasing focus on mercury removal, while in China and other developing countries the stronger standards and stepped up enforcement will stem from efforts to battle air and water pollution caused by rapid industrialization. Robust growth in mercury removal will drive growth in powdered activated carbon demand, which will significantly outpace gains in demand for granular and other activated carbon products. Powdered activated carbons are also favored in developing countries for their low cost and ease of use in other applications such as water treatment. Additionally, the increased use of on-site reactivation equipment for spent granular activated carbon will limit growth in demand for virgin granular activated carbon.
Regulatory actions to spur gains in developed nations
In the US and other industrialized nations, demand for activated carbon will be primarily influenced by regulatory actions. For example, demand for activated carbon in mercury removal applications in the US is expected to more than double by 2018 in response to the full implementation of the US Environmental Protection Agency's Mercury and Air Toxics Standards. Activated carbon injection is projected to be the primary technology used for mercury removal from coal-fired power plants, cement plants, solid waste incinerators, and industrial boilers in the US. Canada and the European Union also have mercury emission standards in place, although not as stringent as those seen in the US. Disinfection byproduct (DBP) limits in drinking water will also support increased demand for activated carbon in an otherwise mature application in developed countries.
