The products will be commercialized by Continental Carbon Europe, under the Continex tradename. Construction on the plant was completed around third quarter last year.

Monique Lempereur, Managing Director of Continental Carbon Europe commented: ‘This new plant represents a unique opportunity for Continental Carbon to develop and expand its presence not only in Europe, Middle East, and Africa but also in the Asia Pacific region. The new organization, headquartered in Belgium, south of Brussels, will offer its customers with a premier customer care support combined with a complete supply chain service. The license to Kemya is also bringing to the market a new competitive source of carbon black produced by a large and reputable joint venture.’
