Orion adds CO2 surcharge for Europe

Filed under: Carbon Black — Notch @ 12:22 am

On Monday, Orion Engineered Carbons announced that effective January 1, 2022, the company is implementing a carbon dioxide (CO2) surcharge on all carbon blacks produced in Europe, to the extent contracts allow.

The official EU Emission Trading System (ETS) aims to support the EU climate neutrality target by 2050 and the intermediate target of at least 55 percent net reduction in greenhouse gas emissions by 2030 compared to 1990. The EU ETS has entered its fourth trading phase (2021-2030) resulting in additional costs based on direct CO2 emissions for the carbon black industry. As a result, Orion will introduce a respective surcharge to its customers.
