Call up the manufacturer. They are supposed to tell you that info.
(Well, I don't know about Australia.)

This stuff could be up to 30 years old. No manufacturer is listed on the
label, just has "Zerocarb" on it. I was hoping someone mught recognise
it as a trade name or something. Oh well - time to put 2nd year
inorganic to use.

Just remember that some older reagents ( eg CO2 absorbers - if that's
what it is ), can include asbestos - eg some Carbosorb products were
sodalime-asbestos rather than just sodalime-indicator, and Ascarite
was sodium hydroxide-asbestos.

I'd just wet a small amount, check the pH, and then dump it with some
absorbent material around it. Probably not worth wasting much time on.

What you most likely have is somthing called Zeokarb. I call your
attention to the reference F. B. Anderson, Clin. Chim. Acta, 12(1965)
659-670. In the appendix on page 670 he mentions the use of Zeokarb
225 (H+) form as an acidifying agent. The stuff seems to be peculiar
to the British! I would guess its harmless.

Try google on Zerocarb. It seems to be a diet supplement for
body-builders.

What does it look like? Sounds like it should be ZeoCarb - Mix of zeolite
and carbon.
