Calgon Carbon (CCC) Wins $2.3M Water Treatment Contract – Nasdaq

Calgon Carbon Corporation CCC and RC Foster Corporation have inked a system supply contract worth $2.3 million under which the former will provide granular activated carbon (GAC) and related equipment systems for the removal of 1,2,3-Trichloropropane (1,2,3-TCP) from groundwater in the city of Chino, CA.

Per the terms of the deal, Calgon Carbon will supply 320,000 pounds of Filtrasorb 400 GAC and 16 GAC adsorption vessels to the Eastside Treatment Plant and the Benson Treatment Plant. These systems, at each site, will treat up to 5 million gallons of water per day.

Calgon Carbon, a pioneer in activated carbon treatment technologies and contaminant removal, has over three decades of experience in providing GAC adsorption systems, which helps to remove 1,2,3-TCP from water. It is touted to be the Best Available Technology (BAT) for 1,2,3-TCP treatment.

Notably,in 1992, pursuant to Safe Drinking Water and Toxic Enforcement Act, 1,2,3-TCP – a colorless, manmade, chlorinated hydrocarbon – was added to the list of chemicals known to the state of California to cause cancer. In July, the California State Water Resources Control Board adopted a maximum contaminant level (MCL) for 1,2,3-TCP of 5 parts per trillion.

According to RC Foster Corporation, the installation of GAC adsorption systems will help the city of Chino to meet the new MCL standards.
