Activated Carbon for Energy Storage

Activated Carbon is increasingly being employed in a number of energy storage fields. Ranging from the storage of Natural Gas to the use of activated carbon in new technology battery and supercapacitor electrodes, the unique properties of the material offer the ability to store energy in a more concentrated way owing to the high surface area.

Eurocarb offers customers direct access to our experienced R&D team, who are able to offer bespoke carbon specifications for highly technical applications such as EDLC (Electronic Double Layer Capacitors).

Our ANG storage carbons offer high storage capacity for fuel gases in pressure vessels, allowing fuel to be stored at a safer low pressure for the same volume, or allowing higher capacity in a given volume. Our EDLC and electrode carbon offer very high surface area in finely ground high purity carbons which are manufactured in accordance with the requirements of automotive and similar end-use applications. 

Key features

Very Large Surface Area

Typically grades for use in this application have surface areas well in excess of 1250m2/g.

High Hardness

A number of proprietary processes during manufacture ensure Eurocarb carbons are hard and are considerably resistant to breakage and fragmentation.

Resistance to High Temperature

Use of Activated Carbon at high temperatures (up to 400 degrees C) will not lead to a loss of the required surface properties. While the user is required to determine the correct limits for their own application use, it is possible to see reactions occurring at temperatures of over 750 degrees in the presence of water vapour.

Inert / Non-Reactive

An emphasis on quality control throughout the manufacturing process ensures very high purity levels. Washed products (both with water and acid) offer even higher purity levels.
