Calgon Carbon’s Gila Bend, AZ Plant Selected As Manufacturer Of The Year, Awarded 2014 Excellence In Sustainability By The Arizona Manufacturers Council

Stocks in this article: CCC

“We are honored that the Arizona Manufacturers Council has selected us for excellence in sustainability as we continue to fulfill our mission of helping municipalities across the region provide safe, clean drinking water to their residents,” said Mr. Dearth.

A growing number of Arizona water utilities are already taking advantage of the cost savings and environmental benefits provided by the Gila Bend reactivation facility, including the cities of Phoenix, Scottsdale, and Glendale, among others. Currently, the 847,000-sq. ft. plant produces 15 million pounds of reactivated carbon per year for use by municipalities.

During the reactivation process, organic compounds that have been captured by GAC are destroyed by being subjected to high temperatures that, at the same time, restore the GAC to a usable state. This results in a cost savings for the customer over the use of virgin carbon. The reactivation/recycling process is also better for the environment, with a reduced CO 2 footprint as compared to the manufacture of virgin activated carbon.

Mr. Dearth added that the Gila Bend plant demonstrates Calgon Carbon’s dedication to the Arizona manufacturing community through the implementation of innovative technology systems that reduce water and energy use.

The custom reactivation process employed at the Gila Bend plant is a Calgon Carbon innovation that has reduced the cost of using GAC by as much as 40 percent and has also reduced the carbon footprint associated with GAC utilization by up to 80 percent. To further advance its environmental sustainability practices, all of the packaging materials at the Gila Bend plant are recycled.
