What is Activated Char Cloth or Activated Charcoal?

Tinder Light manufactures activated and non activated charcoal and char cloth. Other manufacturers activate char cloth by adding chemicals such as calcium chloride and even battery acid to the coal or cloth and then reheating. The process opens up more molecular holes in the material allowing for greater absorption ability. But how do you know that they have cooked those chemicals completely out of the product? You dont. Tinder Light uses steam for activation. Never any chemicals added before or after production.
