Activated carbon acts as an adsorbent to remove unwanted odor in a familiar process known as carbon scrubbing. Through the adsorption process, odorous compounds are trapped inside of the porous surface of the carbon. Carbon with superior surface area, such as Camfil’s LGX-048, a coconut shell activated carbon found inside of our MT-6™ Molecular Filtration System, performs best for odor removal. To illustrate, a tablespoon of this carbon media has the equivalent surface area of an entire football field. Carbon scrubbing is considered the industry’s best management practice for cannabis odor control.
