Applied Catalysts offers several GACC products for chemical processes tailored to chemical applications. GACC products have a high surface area, tunable acidity, high-packing density, and proven performance. Applied Catalysts is known for rapid response, and excellent quality at the volumes required.


Our Process for GACC

Applied Catalysts has an extensive database of known catalytic applications which utilize GACC products. We can help you screen and select the right ACC for your application and scale the catalyst for commercial use.


How Do Granular Activated Carbon Catalysts Benefit You?

Granular Activated Carbon catalysts can be used for many chemistries. These particulate catalysts are an alternative to ACMC catalysts and are advantaged at high pH (>pH 10).

Granular activated carbon catalysts (GACC) can be manufactured from several GAC support types, or a customer can specify other granular carbon supports that can be used in manufactured catalysts.

Standard products include GAC-Pd, GAC-Ni, GAC-Pt, GAC-Rh and GAC-Ru at various wt% loadings.
