China's export of activated carbon has grown sharply over the years, experts believe that will increase the crisis of environmental resources

Customs statistics show that in recent years, the scale of China’s Activated Carbon exports has continued to expand, and China has become the world’s largest producer and exporter of activated Carbon. However, experts believe that the production of activated carbon requires a lot of wood and coal, and it seriously pollutes the environment. If a large amount of activated carbon is produced and exported, it will inevitably exacerbate China’s environmental pollution and shortage of resources.
In recent years, China's export of activated carbon has increased year after year. In 2001, the export volume was 132,000 tons, an increase of 11% over 2000; in 2002, the export volume reached 151,000 tons, an increase of 14.4% over 2001; in 2004, the export volume of activated carbon was also increased compared with 2003. 20%.
At the same time, the production and export of activated carbon in developed countries have gradually decreased. In order to protect resources and environment, traditional strong countries producing activated carbon, such as the United States, Japan, and European countries, have reduced the production of activated carbon, especially the production of medium- and low-grade varieties, and they rely heavily on imports. Some countries that previously imposed anti-dumping measures on China's activated carbon have even cancelled anti-dumping measures.
Limiting the production of activated carbon abroad has objectively promoted the growth of China's export of activated carbon. The low price is also an important reason. At present, the average price of activated carbon produced in China is only half of that in the United States.
Compared with developed countries, China's activated carbon companies are small in size, lagging behind in equipment, and have low labor productivity. Experts believe that in the current situation in which China strongly advocates building a conservation-minded society, it is not appropriate to continue to produce and export activated carbon in large quantities. For activated carbon production companies, it is necessary to realize the transition from blindly expanding production to relying on technological innovation and improving the core competitiveness of enterprises.
