Carbonxt Group LTD (CG1) Unveils New Joint Venture in Investor Presentation

Carbonxt Group LTD



Carbonxt Group LTD (CG1), an industry-leading provider of advanced carbon products and activated carbon services under the leadership of Managing Director Warren Murphy, has unveiled an exciting new joint venture (JV) in their investor presentation of June 2023. The new venture, aptly named ‘NewCarbon’, is a transformative project that aims to repurpose a Waste Water Treatment facility to manufacture premium activated carbon.

This JV is set to increase Carbonxt’s potential market by USD 600 million, predominantly in the field of PFAS removal in drinking water. The strategic introduction of NewCarbon underscores Carbonxt’s and Managing Director Warren Murphy’s dedication to ecological sustainability and its creativity in reducing CO2 emissions. It also paves the way for a significant expansion in their market trajectory.

Highlights from the Presentation

In the June 2023 Investors presentation, Managing Director Warren Murphy took the opportunity to spotlight the company’s new strategic partnership with Kentucky Carbon Processing revealing an innovative direction for the future. This JV revolves around converting an existing waste-to-water plant located in Kentucky into a production site for high-quality activated carbon treatment using advanced carbon technologies. This partnership has been meticulously strategized to secure a steady supply of superior, low-ash bituminous coal while remarkably reducing project execution risks and accelerating the time-to-market.

A significant highlight of this project is its notable environmental consciousness. The modified plant will be able to power itself by harnessing the gas produced during the activated carbon production process. This would effectively reduce the carbon footprint of the structure and the operation it is designed to fulfil. Furthermore, Carbonxt Group Limited also stated that the facility’s design allows for scalability with an option to increase production capacity significantly.

The crucial role of activated carbon in numerous industrial applications was also highlighted during the presentation. Powdered Activated Carbon (PAC) has substantial adsorption capabilities, primarily due to its microporous structure. This is why powdered carbon is widely employed for mercury emission control in power stations, improving water and air quality, and notably, for removing Per- and Polyfluoroalkyl Substances (PFAS). And with the imminent regulatory changes pushing for stricter PFAS removal standards, the demand for activated carbon will only escalate.

Market Opportunities and Financial Implications

As the regulatory landscape shifts, promising market opportunities are opening up for the NewCarbon project. The impending regulations by the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) aimed at safeguarding drinking water standards by imposing stricter PFAS removal regulations are setting the stage for a surge in demand for activated carbon, the most effective method for PFAS removal.

  • Carbonxt’s Expansion and its implications

The rise in demand for Advanced Carbon Technology comes at a strategic moment for Carbonxt. With NewCarbon, the company is now set to significantly expand its product offering and, consequently, its share in the PFAS removal market. This expansion is attributed mainly to regulations requiring PFAS removal in drinking water, therefore propelling Carbonxt into a commanding position in a burgeoning PAC water market.

  • Financial Prospects and Potential Returns of the Joint Venture

The financial implications of this JV are promising. Not only has the rising demand in the market spoken well about the project’s viability, but Managing Director Warren Murphy has also managed to reduce capital investment by approx. USD 3.5 million. The payment to NewCarbon is also partially linked to the project’s milestones.

  • Future Revenue Prospects and Pricing Trends

Managing Director Warren Murphy is expecting high gross margins from the newly added volumes and surge in product prices. Due to this, this venture presents a compelling financial proposition for the company and its investors. Notably, the venture’s design provides the potential to double production capacity from 10,000 to 20,000 tons per annum, further enhancing its future revenue-generating prospects.
