Activated carbon fiber (ACF) is a novel material that is attracting significant attention. The pore structure found on the surface of ACFs is strongly related to their functionality. ACF production from fiber mixtures is considered to be a useful approach for reusing waste cloth and fibers. However, the use of such mixtures of materials in the preparation of ACF has not been investigated in detail. Here, we describe ACF preparation from fiber mixtures and discuss solutions to a problem encountered during preparation.
