An activated carbon filter scrubber system is a type of air pollution control device used to remove gas-phase pollutants from industrial exhaust streams[^1]. It combines the use of activated carbon, which has a high adsorption capacity, with a scrubber system that effectively captures and eliminates contaminants from the air.
The activated carbon acts as a filter media in the scrubber system, adsorbing various pollutants including volatile organic compounds (VOCs), odors, and certain gases. As the exhaust air passes through the system, the activated carbon traps the pollutants, allowing only clean air to be released into the environment. These systems are widely used in industries such as chemical manufacturing, pharmaceuticals, wastewater treatment, and food processing, where the release of harmful gases and odors needs to be controlled.
