how can activated charcoal be cleaned and reused
Dec 30, 2009 Cleaning of Activated Carbon/Charcoal (AC) is actually quite complicated, and can be a bit hit and miss.For most applications it may be adequate to soak it for 48 hours in 9-10% hydrogen ... The porous nature of activated charcoal enables it to absorb odors from the air. You can recycle your used activated charcoal, also called activated carbon, by baking out the odors and reactivating it. Reuse your charcoal just two or three times, as completely cleaning the pores of the activated carbon proves difficult with home appliances.
