Our facilities can restore and regenerate spent carbon to its original performance level using an environment friendly processes. This unique service helps customers reduce operating costs significantly through the reuse/recycle of spent activated carbon.

Green Charcoaling 

Haycarb’s measures to promote ‘green charcoaling’ resulted in ‘Recogen’, a patented project based on local expertise to reduce the ‘carbon footprint’ of our activated carbon, to make it, “the greenest activated carbon’ in the market. This charcoal is manufactured through a mechanized, pollution-free, carbon neutral process at our own facility, which uses waste gases to generate electricity to the national grid.

‘Haritha Angara’ is a backward integration and sustainability initiative driving towards converting traditional pit charcoaling practices by our suppliers, into eco-friendly closed pit-charcoaling. Both these have helped us to sustainably manage the supply chain in an environmentally friendly manner.
