Carbonxt: A High-Growth Cleantech Company to Keep an Eye on


Carbonxt Group Ltd (CG1) (Carbonxt or “Company”) is one of the few ASX-listed cleantech companies. It is a United States-focused company producing advanced carbon products. It innovates activated carbon solutions and services for partner utility companies. Carbonxt’s activated carbon products focus on eliminating toxic compounds from industrial wastewater steams and gases to reduce pollution and corrosion.

A Trip Down Memory Lane – Carbonxt

Launched in 2006, Carbonxt first identified mercury from coal power plants as a market for the Company’s activated carbon products and began efforts toward this application. In the subsequent years, after heavy R&D efforts, Carbonxt successfully tailored its products to suit individual customers’ requirements, that is, individual customers’ mercury emission levels.

In 2010, Carbonxt initiated testing of their oxidizing, non-brominated formula and developed a full-scale field-testing program by 2012. As a result of this, Carbonxt was able to develop strategic partnerships focused on their activated carbon products since 2013.

Since then, Carbonxt has continued the development of unique products and entered several markets away from mercury capture. Carbonxt now focuses on developing premium engineered sorbents that utilize proprietary manufacturing methods to develop environmental solutions singular to each customer. The company now has a comprehensive portfolio that is dedicated to helping companies meet environmental compliance guidelines.

Product Portfolio – Carbonxt

Carbonxt’s high-performance activated carbon products are dedicated to helping their partners meet environmental compliance guidelines. Carbonxt offers solutions in five primary industries.

  • Coal-fired power plants


Carbonxt’s products can be used in coal-fired power plants.

Carbonxt’s customized powdered activated carbons are designed to remove mercury from the plant’s aqueous or gaseous sources. Carbonxt features five unique products for this industry: MATS-PAC, MATS-PAC Plus, MATS-PAC HgZERO, Cxt-WetJect™, and Cxt-NAQ-ACP. All the products include Carbonxt’s patented oxidizing additive.

  • Cement plants

Carbonxt Group Ltd (CG1) services include a customized activated carbon solution for cement plants. The CEM-PAC line is engineered keeping in mind the cement plant’s CISWI and NESHAP compliances. The line includes two products, CEM-PAC and CEM-PAC Plus. Both are non-halogenated additive powders that are suited for high-mercury concentration environments.



  • Industrial boilers and incinerators

Carbonxt’s product line for industrial boilers and incinerators is designed to keep the compliance requirements at these plants in mind. Carbonxt’s MACT-PAC is engineered from waste-to-energy plants. The non-halogenated oxidized powdered activated carbon permits rapid adsorption and removal of mercury.

  • Water

Carbonxt’s powdered activated carbons are designed to remove compounds that give water a poor taste and odor. The product line includes three products, Cxt-BB500, Cxt-BB600, and Cxt-Aqua+. The three products are ANSI/NSF Standard 61 certified and meet the AWWA B600 specifications.


Water Treatment

  • VOCs and hydrogen sulfide

Volatile organic compounds (VOCs) and hydrogen sulfide from gas streams can be controlled with Carbonxt Group Ltd’s (CG1) product range. The products for this industry are manufactured in the United States. The Company offers two products: Cxt-ACP60 and Cxt-ACP80. Both are high-quality activated carbon sorbents for industrial gas purification.
