Karbonous Inc. offers a wide range of carbon filters for odor control products (activated carbon odor control). These specialty carbons are produced from various raw materials to treat nuisance odors.

These products, including odor control filter, consist of both impregnated and non-impregnated activated carbons.

Application for Activated Carbon Odor Control:


  • Wastewater treatment
  • Hydrogen sulfide and mercaptan removal
  • Industrial air purification systems
  • Odor control systems
  • Rendering Plants
  • Recycling
  • Leather Manufacturing
  • Paper and Pulp
  • Municipal Solid Waste
  • Fertilizer ProcessingOdor control systems
  • Fertilizer Processing
  • Cannabis/Grow Operations
  • Food Processing (involving poultry and meat, fish meal, grease and fats)

Molecular Carbon Filter Odor Control Is a Technology for Removing Odor

Odor elimination needs a different strategy than traditional dust and particle management and removal. Standard filtration may efficiently remove solid and dust particles. Specialized filter media can collect even very tiny (sub-micron) particles. A HEPA filter, for example, catches 99.97 percent of 0.3 millimeter particles, including viruses and bacteria.

Most odor control filters are made up of even smaller molecules (0.01 micron or smaller) that are dispersed as a gas or vapor in the air. A HEPA or MERV filter will not catch chemical contaminants or odors. We need to utilize molecular filtration techniques to collect these tiny molecules, which use chemical or physical processes to trap small molecules within the medium. Adsorption is the most widely utilized kind of molecular filtration. The physical attraction of a gas or liquid molecule to a solid surface is known as adsorption. The surface traps the odor molecule via physical forces known as van der Waal’s forces.

Impregnated Activated Carbon’s Most Common Applications

Aldehydes (e.g., Acetaldehyde, Acrolein, Formaldehyde) Ammonia (NH3) and Amines
Carbon Dioxide (CO2) and Carbon Monoxide (CO) Fuel Gases (e.g., Acetylene, Butane, Ethane, Ethylene, Propane, Methane, Propylene)
Hydrogen, Hydrogen Bromide (HBr), Hydrogen Chloride (HCl), Hydrogen Selenide (H2Se), and Hydrogen Sulfide (H2S) Mercury (Mg)
Nitrogen Dioxide (NO2) and Sulfur Dioxide (SO2) Radioactive Iodine and Organic Iodides
