Calgon Carbon Japan (CCJ), a wholly-owned subsidiary of Calgon Carbon Corporation (NYSE: CCC) (CCC or the Company), today announced the recent finalization of contracts with Mitsui & Co. Plant Systems, Ltd. (Mitsui) to supply pelletized activated carbon. CCJ’s activated carbon products, which will be manufactured at its Fukui, Japan facility, will be distributed by Mitsui to Wisconsin Public Service Corporation (WPS) for the control of sulfur dioxide (SO2), nitrogen oxides (NOx), and mercury from the exhaust flow of its Unit 3 electric generator at its Weston Generating Power Plant near Wausau, Wisconsin.
The agreement calls for CCJ’s products to be optimally sized and activated to meet the requirements of WPS’s newly installed ReACTTM (Regenerative Activated Coke Technology) multi-emission control system. This represents the first use of activated carbon pellets for this type of application in the United States. Product shipments from CCJ commenced in July 2015.
“We’re pleased to be selected by Mitsui and WPS in helping meet their requirements for the control of SO2, NOx, and mercury emissions,” said James Coccagno, Senior Vice President – Asia, Global Procurement and Strategic Initiatives. “In addition to highlighting the broad spectrum of our activated carbon solutions for meeting various water and air purification requirements, our selection to be a provider of carbon pellets for this emission control solution in the United States demonstrates the strength of the Calgon Carbon trusted brand and our reputation for developing and delivering the quality solutions required by our customers. We look forward to continuing to build partnerships to develop cost-effective air purification solutions to meet requirements.”
