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 primary direct contribution is to focus on material efficiency as part of our normal course of business: 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. Our product portfolio consists of activated carbon, ion exchange resins and specialty industrial chemicals based on zirconium, 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 optimize process conditions. We focus on developing long-term partnerships 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 main focus, our products have achieved the following certifications and quality standards: ANSI/NSF Standard 61, 44 & 372, ISO 9001 & 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.
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 regional offices in Shanghai, Cape Town and Mexico to support our business in Asia, Africa and Latin America and supply our products in approx twenty countries, which include Fortune 500 companies such as Coca-Cola, Pepsi-Cola, Chevron, General Electric, ADM and Ingredion.
