The industry standard is a coconut shell derived carbon, which is an excellent carbon source for a broad range of chemicals.

I received my air cleaner 3 days ago and it already has made a huge difference in the air quality of my home. Much of the dust is already gone from the air as well as many odors from the wood stove. my turkey ran over in the oven on Thanksgiving and totally smoked up the house and the air cleaner quickly cleaned the leftover smoky air residue that remained after closing the windows. I started finding it easier to breathe within 4 hours of operating the machine. It is not a pretty appliance however it is very easily moveable and I have come to like that feature very much. The replacement filters are very expansive but I think that if the air cleaner continues to work this well ,then the price of the air filters will actually be about the same as replacing all of my others twice a yearly replacement with the cheaper air cleaners that don't even begin to do the job, and this appliance's filter can go for 2-3 years before changing. Customer service has been excellent so far. If you are debating this purchase like I did for ages, Feel comfortable with your purchase. It's worth it! I hope this review helps someone.
