Product Sustainability

Our vision of delivering performance that makes a difference is exemplified by our products that provide health, safety, environmental and other sustainability benefits for our customers and their customers.

We are committed to continuing to develop innovative products that improve the performance of our customers’ products by imparting properties that extend product life spans, increase fuel efficiency and optimize resource conservation. We look to grow our involvement in the circular economy by developing opportunities to use waste or byproducts as raw materials. As responsible manufacturers, we understand our obligation to share comprehensive information on the health, safety and environmental aspects of our products.

Product Life Cycle

Life Cycle Analysis


We initiated a cradle-to-gate life cycle analysis of our carbon black products that will allow us to focus our attention on key opportunities along our value chain to reduce our overall greenhouse gas footprint. Once this analysis is complete, we expect to be able to provide Scope 1, 2 and 3 GHG emission estimates and other environmental aspects for various carbon black product grades in 2021.

Advancing Our Customers

We are constantly working with our customers to find innovative solutions that will help them advance their own products. In many cases, this allows us to work with customers who have their own ambitions for sustainability by developing products with superior efficiency, durability, or cutting edge applications like those for renewable energy.
