European Operations (known as Chemviron)

  • Feluy plant near Brussels, Belgium
  • Ashton-in-Makerfield plant near Manchester, United Kingdom
  • Houghton le-Spring plant near Newcastle, United Kingdom
  • Tipton plant in Tipton, United Kingdom

Operations at our Grays plant in the United Kingdom were idled in 2016 and indicator data are no longer reported for this operation. Purchased for the reactivation of spent granular activated carbon, the Tipton plant in Tipton, United Kingdom was renovated in 2015 and operational in 2016 and included in the data collection and reporting for this report as applicable and available.

In November of 2016, Calgon Carbon acquired the wood-based activated carbon, reactivation and mineral-based filtration media business of CECA, a subsidiary of Arkema Group. The acquisition expands our European Operations by the addition of five facilities. As these facilities were not acquired until the close of 2016, these facilities and their relevant sustainability indicator data are not included in the scope of this report. We look forward to integrating these operations and their sustainability performance in future reports.
