This latter stage is what is meant by "activation" of the charcoal. 18 Activated Charcoal and the Adsorption Process A. 19 Carbonization The pyrolysis step is usually carried out by heating the source material to temperatures ranging between 600 and 900°C in the absence of air. Development of a porous material during this first step has been found to be aided greatly by incorporating metallic chlorides in the starting mixture. A typical example of this is the European process in which pulverized peat or sawdust is mixed with a concentrated zinc chloride solution, dried, and carbonized in a kiln at 60O-700°C.
