Company Profile

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 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 and wood that are available in granular and powder forms. With quality being a primary focus, our products have achieved the following certifications and quality standards: ANSI/NSF Standards 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.

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, 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, Mexico and Central America to support our business in these strategic regions. Carbochem® products are supplied to customers in more than twenty countries, including Fortune 500 companies such as Coca-Cola, Pepsi-Cola, Tate & Lyle, and ADM.

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.
