Calgon Carbon : Providing Pure Water, Clean Air and A Better World
Stevan R. Schott, President and CEO
One can say without a doubt that water is the most essential resource for human beings and the environment. Wastewater treatment plays a significant role in not only returning clean and safe water to its source but also keeping the environment safe. But when it comes to the efficiency of wastewater treatment plants, it is seldom optimal. Operational efficiency is of utmost importance in treatment facilities. Though development has taken place in this segment, challenges still exist. Energy consumption, the presence of trained and certified staff, and sludge removal are some of the challenges. Calgon Carbon, an activated carbon product manufacturer, offers unique solutions which tackle all the challenges mentioned above.
Calgon Carbon Corporation aims at developing and applying activated carbon technologies to protect people and the environment from contaminated water, food, and air. It is one of the world’s top players in the activated carbon and reactivation industry. It is a worldwide brand that focuses on its customers’ needs by providing high-quality and cost-effective services. It does so by employing worldwide marketing, and manufacturing networks, which offer efficient activated carbon technologies. It also reuses and recycles activated carbon to reduce the cost of manufacturing.
Calgon Carbon offers complementary expertise in Granular Activated Carbons (GAC), ultraviolet disinfection, oxidation, ion exchange technology, and ballast water treatment. Calgon Carbon offers advanced purification systems for drinking water, odor control, wastewater, pollution abatement, and various commercial processes. It currently offers over 700 distinct market applications such as purifying air and drinking water, purifying foods and pharmaceuticals, separating gas, and removal of mercury emissions from coal-fired power plants.fInnovation has always been a part of Calgon Carbons. It introduced an advanced UV Oxidation process to remediate contaminated groundwater in 1998, followed by the breakthrough in drinking water treatment using inactivated Cryptosporidium and other similar pathogens.

This inventive spree has continued and positioned technology with its products such as Sentinel® line for drinking water, the C3 Series™ for wastewater, and the Rayox® line for groundwater and process water.
Since creating the first activated carbon product from bituminous coal in the 1940s, Calgon Carbon has been the pioneer of the development of several innovative products. The company currently focuses on municipal drinking water purification technology, which is continuously upgraded to keep up with the evolving drinking water and wastewater regulations. It has helped several towns and villages in the U.S. obtain safe drinking water in an environment-friendly manner. It offers a wide range of capital and service equipment to address specific municipality needs.
The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has suggested Granular Activated Carbon (GAC) as the best available technology for the purification of water, and Calgon Carbon has mastered the use of GAC. It also offers groundwater treatment to remove industrial chemicals, viruses, and bacteria from groundwater. It also offers safe and economical spent carbon handling and thermal reactivation, including RCRA Hazardous spent carbon.
Calgon Carbon believes in sustainable development and is committed to developing water treatment technologies that not only address the growing demand for scarce water resources, but also mitigate the environmental impact of human activities on the water supply. Its purification methods remove contaminants such as perfluorinated compounds, hydrogen sulfides, trihalomethane (THM), and perchlorates, which are extremely dangerous for the environment and human health. The dedication towards environmental protection is what distinguishes Calgon Carbon from other players in the market and motivates it to develop innovative green solutions.
