Granular Bone Char

Bone Char is a black, granular solid obtained by calcining cattle bones.  Through the calcining process crushed bone is stripped clean leaving carbon and tricalcium phosphate.  Bone char has proven to be a valuable filtering media in the purification of sugar syrups, removing dissolved contaminants from aquarium water and removing fluoride from water.  Bone char has also a high absorptive capacity for lead, mercury and arsenic.
