Shell Charcoal is an important product obtained from coconut shell. Shell charcoal is used widely as domestic and industrial fuel. It is also used by blacksmiths and goldsmiths and in laundries. Shell Charcoal is also used to produce activated carbon. Activated Carbon produced from coconut shell has certain specific advantages as the raw material can adsorb certain molecular species. The shell charcoal is manufactured by burning shells of fully matured nuts in limited supply of air sufficient only for carbonisation, but not for complete destruction. There are many methods of coconut shell charcoal production, but the drum method and pit method are the most widespread. In general, shell charcoal is made by burning coconut shells in a limited supply of oxygen. It is important to know that oxygen could destroy shells if the air will not be limited.  It should be used clean, fully dried and mature shells in order to get high quality charcoal. Coconut shell charcoal is found to be a suitable material in the development of golf courses, according to the Coconut Development Board sources here. In golf courses, a layer of coconut shell charcoal is laid to a certain depth along with sand and other biomass before grass is planted.

This problem can be easily solved by adsorption of which carbon has become one of the most generally used materials for the purpose, animal matter. The resulting amorphous products include charcoal coke and petroleum coke.

Granulated activated carbons are used for purification of gases or liquids and can be used in a vertical carbon packed column. It finds application in the preparations of pills and digestive tables. Its adsorptive properties are utilized in the treatment of oilments of the stomach due to hyperacidity.

 Due to the expansion of pharmaceutical and vegetable oil industry the demand of activated carbon is expected to rise sharply in the coming years.
