The use of activated carbon to remove harmful impurities from water has been practiced since
times. Activated carbon is extremely porous with a very large surface area, making it an
adsorbent material, and common natural substances like lignite, bituminous and anthracite
peat, wood and coconut shell can be used to make activated carbon.
Swift Green chooses to use coconut shell to make the activated carbon because:
- Coconuts are grown in over eighty countries and have a total production of 61 million
- This leaves coconut husks. Which are discarded or burned.
- Swift Green Filters takes the consumer waste (husk) and activates it in a closed system
create carbon for our filters.
- Coconuts a fast renewable resource.
- Coconut carbon has 50% more micro pores for capturing and holding contaminants than any
carbon, as well as its unique ability to polish the taste of water.
