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 carbon black products. This product is widely used in industries such as textiles, coatings, adhesives, batteries, plastics, high-performance materials, among others.
Currently, the plant is undergoing comprehensive technology upgrades, including the transformation of production lines, improvement of production process safety control levels and safety, health, and environmental protection related facilities. The facility will take advantage of the industrial park carbon-based new material industry cluster effect to become a role model for a regional close-loop economy.
The technology upgrades will optimize the carbon black production structure to meet the market's demand for specialty carbon black. 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.
