Just one gram of granular activated carbon (GAC) can have a surface area equivalent to several football fields.

This extraordinary surface area is a result of the porous structure of GAC, providing a vast number of adsorption sites.

This numerical aspect highlights the efficiency and versatility of GAC in various applications, from water treatment to air purification and beyond.
