To be a dynamic, global company focusing on the needs of customers and supplying products based on technical innovation that provide value on a long-term basis.
Carbochem is committed to protecting the environment and fulfilling our civic duties and responsibilities. Our most significant contribution is to promote the efficient use of raw materials as part of our business model: we have developed processes, in conjunction with the products we supply, to minimize water and energy consumption in bottling plants and to facilitate the use of lower quality sugars to expand supply chain options.
Carbochem Inc. is a privately held, U.S. corporation that was established in 1984 and is headquartered in Philadelphia. Carbochem is a leading supplier of activated carbon, ion exchange resins and specialty industrial chemicals based on zirconium, tungsten and isocyanuric acid, which are supplied to the following markets: food and beverage, water treatment, glucose, sugar, sweeteners, fruit juice, wine, catalysts, ceramics, pigments, paint and coatings, personal care and pharmaceuticals, oil and gas purification, pollution control, air purification, chemical processing, pulp and paper, and automotive.
The guiding principle of Carbochem is to provide value to customers by developing proprietary products that can offer a performance cost benefit and improve efficiency. A key component of the value is to reduce total cost by providing technical support with the goal of solving production problems and optimizing process conditions. We focus on developing long-term partnerships with our customers by providing dedicated customer service, technical innovation, consistent product quality and reliable supply.
In 1987, we established a manufacturing base in China to produce a complete line of activated carbon products based on U.S. technology. Carbochem supplies proprietary activated carbon products derived from bituminous coal, coconut shells and wood that are available in granular, powder and extruded forms. With quality being a primary focus, our products have achieved the following certifications and quality standards: ANSI/NSF Standard 61, 44 and 372, ISO 9001 and 14001, Food Chemicals Codex, USDA National Organic Program, GMO, Halal and Kosher. In addition, Carbochem® products are registered under the Bioterrorism Regulation as required by the U.S. FDA to confirm their integrity and traceability.
As a major supplier to the food and beverage industries, Carbochem has developed proprietary grades of activated carbon for decolorizing applications such as sugar, glucose, fructose, apple juice, grape juice; pressure swing adsorption for gas purification, solvent recovery, removal of taste and odor compounds such as Geosmin, MIB and TOC. We have also developed a proprietary design for activated carbon filters used by beverage companies to prevent microbial contamination and improve operating performance and efficiency.
We have established a regional office in Shanghai to provide the communication channel with each factory and to coordinate the shipments and optimize logistics. In addition, we have established offices in South Africa and Mexico to support our customers in these important regions. Carbochem products are supplied to customers in more than twenty countries, including Fortune 500 companies such as Coca-Cola, Pepsi-Cola, Chevron, General Electric, ADM and Ingredion.
