Calgon Carbon Awarded Contract for Removal of SOx and NOx from Steel Plant Flue Gas

Calgon Carbon Corporation (NYSE: CCC) announced today that its wholly owned subsidiary, Calgon Carbon Japan (CCJ) has been awarded a contract to supply approximately 5.3 million lbs of activated carbon to BlueScope Steel in Australia for removal of sulfur oxide (SOx) and nitrogen oxide (NOx) from exhaust gases at one of its steel manufacturing facilities. Terms of the agreement were not disclosed.

Deliveries of activated carbon will begin immediately and continue throughout 2013 to BlueScope’s Port Kembla, New South Wales, Australia facility. BlueScope Steel has operations in Australia, New Zealand, Asia, and North America.

The process for removing SOx and NOx, commonly known DeSOx/DeNOx, is an integrated pollutant control technology that removes SOx, NOx, and mercury by adsorption and catalytic functionality of an activated carbon specifically designed for this application. The activated carbon is regenerated, and this process can also recover SOx as sulfuric acid.

"We are very pleased that BlueScope selected CCJ to provide activated carbon for its pollution control needs," commented Allan Singleton, vice president-Asia, at Calgon Carbon. "CCJ has provided a specialized activated carbon for this application for more than 10 years to customers in Australia, Japan, and Korea."

Calgon Carbon Corporation, headquartered in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, is a global leader in services and solutions for making water and air safer and cleaner.
