Cabot receives permit for new mine operation in Texas, US

BOSTON, US: Cabot Corporation announced that Cabot Norit Activated Carbon has received operating permits for its new mine near Marshall, Texas, US. As part of Cabot’s strategic plan to meet the anticipated quadrupling of demand for activated carbon for use in the coal-fired utility market, this investment is expected to begin production in 2014 and produce lignite for approximately 50 years. Securing this long-term raw material source enables Cabot to deliver unmatched supply assurance and consistent product performance.

“The new mine and dragline represent Cabot’s commitment to support and extend our market leadership position in the mercury emission control market. As demand accelerates, having access to a long-term raw material supply is critical for our support of our customers. The new mine will help ensure that we have an uninterrupted supply of lignite well into the future and can meet the quadrupling of market demand,” said Bart Kalkstein, Vice President and General Manager, Global Emission Control Solutions, Cabot.
