When creating synthetic rutile, Tronox uses coal to heat the ilmenite extracted from mineral sands. The result is a combination of reduced ilmenite and a residue called char.
Tronox separates the char and packages it for sale as activated carbon.
This production method gives the carbon unique properties, which make it suitable for many applications, from water and air filters, to the de-colorization of olive oil and wine.
