  • Micropollutant reduction at wastewater treatment plants
    Cabot’s NORIT® SAE SUPER, HYDRODARCO® C, NORIT GAC 612 WFD and NORIT GAC 830 W high-quality activated carbons deliver exceptional micropollutant elimination and removal of ozonation oxidation byproducts for wastewater effluent purification. As a result, these products significantly reduce total micropollutant loads and potentially harmful residuals from entering surface waters.

    The largest and most respected municipal drinking water companies rely on Cabot Norit Activated Carbon for its custom reactivation carbon products and services. With three green reactivation plants covering a broad geographic footprint, Cabot can help customers minimize costs associated with transporting heavy spent carbons long distances.

For customers looking to optimize removal of siloxanes and/or VOC’s, Cabot offers NORIT RB 4W activated carbon.
  • CAPEX reduction for residual oxidants removal from water
    The NORIT ROW CAT activated carbon series offers enhanced catalytic performance that optimizes processes such as H2O2/UV that require the elimination of residual hydrogen peroxide and possible by-products.
