Cabot Norit Activated Carbon Unveils DARCO H2S HF Activated Carbon for Odor Control Applications

Cabot Norit Activated Carbon reported the launch of DARCO H2S HF activated carbon for odor control applications.

According to a media release, the DARCO H2S HF product is designed to deliver hydrogen sulfide and odor removal while improving operational efficiency by reducing system pressure drop.

Many sewage treatment plants are demanding odor removal solutions that deliver improved efficiency while enabling them to consume less energy and reduce operational costs. Cabot said that it has developed the new DARCO H2S HF high performance carbon solution with a larger particle size that gives the product a low pressure drop and high removal efficiency for harmful hydrogen sulfide (H2S). The high flow characteristics enable the product to operate efficiently under less pressure, while its high H2S removal capacity results in longer life and less frequent change outs, reducing customers' purification costs.

"Activated carbon is a common solution for H2S removal. However, many products do not have the high flow characteristics needed to provide optimal operational efficiency. We have engineered the DARCO H2S HF carbon with higher flow characteristics and properties that improve overall H2S removal and efficiency," said William Krents, Global Market Segment Manager, Purification Solutions. "To further help customers lower their total costs, ensure security of supply, and guarantee the highest quality standards, Cabot has made the strategic decision to produce the DARCO H2S HF product at our European ISO certified plant. Cabot's European production operations are well-positioned to supply customers with this new odor control product without interruption, given that imports of European activated carbon entering the United States are subject to only a modest, fixed tariff."

Cabot Corp. is a specialty chemicals and performance materials company, headquartered in Boston, Massachusetts.

    Tea Forté Introduces ‘Matcha’ Collection

    Convenience meets tradition in Tea Forté’s new Ceremonial Matcha Bowl Set and the Matcha Single Steeps.

    The company said its spring harvested, shade grown, stone ground, organic matcha tea is best served in a centuries-old Japanese tea ceremony called chanoyu: a preparation technique known for its centering meditative qualities.

    "The launch of Tea Forté's Matcha collection represents our continued commitment to wellness and cultivating all the potential mental and physical health benefits of tea," says Tea Forté CEO Michael Gebrael. "In addition to our high quality Pure Matcha, we've also blended four distinct flavored Matcha varieties. Prepackaged in pouches measured out for a single serving, our Single Steeps Matcha is ideal for the office, travel, or to keep with you for a boost anytime."

    Tea Forté noted its handcrafted ceremonial tea bowl, handmade bamboo whisk and measuring ladle “encourages serene enjoyment of our premium Kosher, gluten-free and vegan matcha blends.” These include: Pure Matcha, Chocolate Matcha, Coconut Matcha, Ginger Matcha, and Chai Matcha.

    According to a release, in addition to its distinctive taste, matcha is prized for its health benefits. Steeped green tea contains only the antioxidants that can be extracted in water, while with matcha, the whole leaf is consumed.
