PITTSBURGH -- February 19, 2013

Calgon Carbon Corporation (NYSE: CCC) announced that it has been awarded a
contract by a major U.S. power generator to supply FLUEPAC® brominated
powdered activated carbon (PAC) to remove mercury from the fluegas of
coal-fired power plants in the Midwest. The value of the contract is estimated
to be $16 to $22 million.

The two-year contract follows the expiration of a five-year, take-or-pay
supply agreement between the two companies. Calgon Carbon will provide certain
electric generating units with 100% of their activated carbon requirements for
mercury removal for a period of two years. The agreement includes an option to
extend the contract through 2015. Under terms of the agreement, the price of
the FLUEPAC carbon will be adjusted annually based on certain Producer Price
indices which are published by the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics.

“We are extremely pleased with this customer’s decision to continue use of our
FLUEPAC carbon. It clearly demonstrates confidence in the quality and
reliability of our product to meet stringent state regulations for control of
mercury emissions from power plant flue gas,” commented Jim Sullivan, Calgon
Carbon’s senior vice president – Americas’ operations.

Calgon Carbon’s standard and advanced FLUEPAC products were developed
specifically for the emerging mercury removal market and have been proven to
meet or exceed the performance requirements of the U.S. EPA’s Mercury and Air
Toxic Standards (MATS). In full-scale tests, the company’s new advanced
FLUEPAC carbons not only exceeded performance standards but were also proven
to reduce activated carbon injection rates by 50 – 70% as compared to standard
products.

global leader in services and solutions for making water and air safer and
cleaner.
