We continually strive for safety, health and environmental (SH&E) excellence, as well as the sustainable development of the community in which we operate.
Cabot Performance Materials (Xuzhou) Co., Ltd. was acquired by Cabot Corporation in October 2018. The company was originally NSCC Carbon (Jiangsu) Co., Ltd, a subsidiary of Nippon Steel & Sumikin Chemical Co., Ltd.
The Xuzhou plant is located in the Economic Development Zone of Pizhou, Jiangsu Province, and produces high-performance specialty carbons. This product is widely used in industries such as textiles, coatings, adhesives, batteries, plastics, high-performance materials, among others.
Comprehensive technology upgrades were implemented at the plant, including the transformation of production lines, improvement of production process safety control levels, and safety, health, and environmental protection equipment. This facility takes advantage of the industrial park carbon-based new material industry cluster effect and is a role model for a regional close-loop economy.
The technology upgrades enable the optimization of the carbon black production structure to meet the market's demand for specialty carbons. The Xuzhou plant upholds the company's values, adheres to the highest ethical standards, and is committed to being a responsible corporate citizen and promoting Responsible Care® initiatives.
