Jacobi Carbons Inc.

Activated carbon and ion exchange can be called two sides of the same coin. Where activated carbon purifies water by removing organic contaminants through an adsorption process, ion exchange removes contaminants under the surface via electrical charge. Jacobi Carbons is well known for its work on one side, as the largest worldwide manufacturer of activated carbons that utilize coconut shell, but for over a dozen years, Jacobi has been developing ion exchange technologies primarily in Europe.
