Calgon Signs 10-Year Carbon-Reactivation Pact With Thames Water

Aug. 1 (Bloomberg) -- Calgon Carbon Corp. won a 10-year contract from Thames Water Utilities Ltd., the U.K.’s largest provider of water and wastewater services, to reactivate carbon used to treat drinking water.

“The value of the contract is dependent upon the amount of carbon that is reactivated annually, which is expected to be approximately 11 million pounds (5 million kilograms), Pittsburgh-based Calgon said in a statement today. Calgon’s Chemviron unit will handle the carbon at facilities in the U.K. and Belgium until renovations costing $9.5 million are finished at its Tipton plant near Birmingham next year.
