Regulations and standards are being implemented around the world to reduce mercury emissions, which have been proven to cause health issues through the contamination of consumable fish and wildlife.
A significant amount of mercury emissions come from coal that is burned to generate electricity. The toxicity and persistence of mercury in emissions from coal-fired power plants, industrial boilers and cement kilns has caused many state environmental agencies to establish regulatory controls on flue gas emissions. Based on numerous United States Department of Energy and and Environmental Protection Agency sponsored tests and customer trials, our DARCO® Hg family of powdered activated carbon has proven to be a highly effective solution to reduce these mercury emissions.
Our activated carbon products enable potable water, wastewater and industrial process water to meet purification, performance and regulatory compliance goals.
A critical challenge in maximizing the potential of wind energy is a windmill blade’s length. As blades get longer, they deliver more efficient and more powerful performance.
A strong bonding paste can help prolong the life of a blade, and ultimately enable the manufacturing of even longer blades through more sag-resistant composites. To address this challenge, we offer CAB-O-SIL® ULTRABOND™ high-performance treated fumed silica. This innovative material significantly increases efficiency and performance for windmill blades and wind turbine generators by delivering 25 to 30 percent higher sag resistance (initial and aged), compared to current industry solutions. Our hydrophobic fumed silica can help windmill blade producers meet the toughest requirements and deliver the highest performance.Less
Product stewardship and hazard assessment go hand-in-hand with innovation at Cabot Corporation.
Our cesium formate brines are used as drilling and completion fluids for high pressure, high temperature (HPHT) oil and gas well operations.
They are an excellent alternative to conventional drilling fluids because they offer many safety, health and environmental advantages. Our fluids are solids-free, high-density and low-viscosity, which helps enable safe and efficient well construction and workover operations. They minimize damage to reservoirs and are readily biodegradable in accordance with the testing guidelines set forth by the Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD). Our fluids can be recycled and used in multiple projects, providing a cleaner, safer way to conduct HPHT drilling operations. Learn more about how you can unlock your reservoir's value with high-density cesium formate brines.Less
