Pittsburgh-based Calgon Carbon Corp., a supplier of water and air treatment systems, has received a
wastewater treatment contract from Huntsman Textile Effects (Qingdao) Co. Ltd. — a China-based
subsidiary of Huntsman Special Effects, Switzerland — to provide activated carbon adsorption
vessels and reactivation services valued at more than US$1.5 million.
Huntsman Textile Effects (Qingdao) Co. Ltd. synthesizes, standardizes and dries textile
dyes; and also formulates and distributes textile chemicals.
Huntsman (Qingdao) has installed three Calgon Carbon carbon adsorption vessels for
wastewater treatment at the plant, which blends, standardizes and dries textile dyes; and
formulates and distributes textile chemicals. The vessels contain 60,000 pounds of activated
carbon, and Calgon Carbon will remove, transport and reactivate expended carbon; and supply
replacement carbon for the system.
“We are very pleased that Huntsman has chosen Calgon Carbon to provide wastewater treatment
at its facility in Qingdao,” said John Stanik, chairman and CEO, Calgon Carbon. “We are committed
to provide products and services to both Chinese and multinational companies to make air and water
safer and cleaner in China.”
