In October, the purchase and sale of the activated carbon market seems to have a better performance than in September. The overall supply of coal based activated carbon is much tight, especially the powdered activated carbon, the factory is almost free of stock.
At present, influenced by the “19th CPC National Congress”, there are strict requirements of local environmental protection and safe production, which affect the overall supply.

Refer to coconut shell activated carbon, the lack of raw materials has led to the tightening of carbon supply, so its price keeps rising.
