Orion Engineered Carbons opens new carbon black production line in Italy

Specialty chemical company Orion Engineered Carbons has commenced commercial sales from the first new reactor for carbon black production to be commissioned in the European Union in over 40 years.

Its new 25kt line at the facility in Ravenna, Italy, in the northern region of Emilia-Romagna, produces specialty and technical rubber carbon blacks, primarily for the European market.

“The new line offers customers seeking long-term solutions a unique strategic opportunity to align with a dependable plant that has been operating for more than 60 years in Europe,” said Orion CEO Corning Painter.

Additional investments at the plant include a new co-generation facility to convert waste heat into electricity, generating up to 120MWh of electricity per year. Of that electricity, 70% is supplied to the national grid, serving about 30,000 households. Orion is a net exporter of electricity in Europe and worldwide.
