GAC (carbon) removes dissolved organic pollutants from water by a process called “adsorption”. Just one pound of (GAC) carbon granules has an effective total surface area equal to that of a 150-acre farm. A single handful of carbon has the surface area equal to a football field. That is a lot of adsorption power!
