Cancarb: Fifth Thermal Black Unit Already Online

Filed under: Carbon Black — Notch @ 8:36 pm

Here is some additional information about Cancarb’s maintenance program, which this blog covered late last week.

Canada-based Cancarb, which is the world’s largest producer of N990 thermal black, recently completed a maintenance program to keep up with strong demand. The company has five production units at its plant in Alberta, Canada with a total of 45,000 tonnes of capacity. Under the program, Cancarb restarted the plant’s fifth unit about two weeks ago. The unit was idled in 2008. This additional capacity allowed Cancarb to maintain shipments while doing a phased shut-down of two other units for maintenance turnarounds. The second of these unit turnarounds was completed on Friday, May 13, and the company expects all five units to be operating at maximum rates by this week.
