Cabot breaks ground on China carbon black plant

April 19/2012

(hydrocarbonprocessing) -- Cabot and joint venture partner Risun Chemicals broke ground on a new carbon black manufacturing facility in Xingtai, China. The new plant will have a Phase I manufacturing capacity of 130,000 tpy of carbon black, and will enable Cabot to increase its carbon black output in China by 25%.

Cabot Corp. and joint venture partner Risun Chemicals Co. broke ground Tuesday on a new carbon black manufacturing facility in Xingtai, China.

The project, announced in March 2011, is scheduled to be completed in mid-2013. Cabot and Risun are investing approximately USD140 million in the new facility, they said, with Cabot owning a 60% equity interest.

In the partnership, Cabot says it brings technology advancements and a leadership position in China while Risun provides the feedstock and energy integration capabilities with its current operations.

The new facility, located about 250 miles (400 kilometers) south of Beijing in Heibei Province, will help support tire and automotive growth in China, officials said.


Carbon black is a reinforcing agent essential in the manufacturing of tires. The material is also used in many automotive parts, including adhesives and sealants, battery materials, coatings, and more.

According to IHS Automotive, Chinas motor vehicle fleet is expected to grow to approximately 315 million vehicles over the next 10 years, up from 102 million vehicles today.

The new Xingtai facility will have a Phase I manufacturing capacity of 130,000 tpy of carbon black, and will enable Cabot to increase its carbon black manufacturing capacity in China by 25%, the company said.
