Carbonxt and Kentucky Carbon Processing JV Plant Gains Momentum

Carbonxt Group Limited (ASX: CG1) (“Carbonxt” or “the Company”) has recently published its report for the June 2023 Quarter, offering valuable insights into the critical areas of activity during this period. The Company showcases significant progress and positive developments in various aspects. Some notable highlights include successfully executing legal documentation for the Joint Venture (JV) with Kentucky Carbon Processing, LLC (KCP) to establish a state-of-the-art activated carbon plant in Kentucky, USA. This strategic move enables Carbonxt to offer activated carbon products with a 50% ownership stake in a 10,000-ton-per-annum plant producing high-quality activated carbon products, with further expansion anticipated for minimal additional capital expenditure.

The development of the KCP marks a transition from the existing Inez Power facility to an activated carbon plant, reducing development risk, lowering costs, increasing capacity and ensuring better scheduling of future cash flows for Carbonxt Group Ltd.

This JV also enables Carbonxt to enter the wastewater treatment sector for Activated Carbon products, like powdered activated carbon (PAC), significantly increasing the Company’s estimated addressable market by approximately USD 900 million. Noteworthy cost management efforts led to a significant 24% decrease in product manufacturing and operating costs compared to the previous quarter. This decrease was primarily due to implementing planned efficiency actions at the Arden Hills and Black Birch facilities.

Regarding the Joint Venture with KCP, Carbonxt commenced construction for the Kentucky plant during the quarter, and sales are scheduled to begin in 1H24. This strategic partnership provides them with a 50% share in future income streams and an annual production increase of +10,000 tons, with room for further expansion of another 10,000 tons at a meagre cost.

Activated Carbon Pellet (ACP) revenue experienced a temporary 37% decrease on a quarter-on-quarter basis due to seasonality from Carbonxt’s largest customer. However, the customer is still forecasting similar annual demand, giving the Company confidence in a steady performance.

Carbonxt’s underlying solid operating cash flow reflects prudent inventory management, and they anticipate recouping the primary ACP customer’s inventory buildup in the September quarter. Their pending new activated carbon plant in Kentucky remains on track. It is expected to unlock numerous commercial opportunities and expand into new customer segments and applications in the 2024 Fiscal Year.

With significant progress in the Joint Venture, efficient cost management and promising growth prospects in key markets, Carbonxt Group is well-positioned to capitalise on its strengths and continue delivering positive outcomes in the cleantech industry. Managing Director Warren Murphy expresses enthusiasm for the Kentucky manufacturing facility’s execution and construction progress, ensuring a comprehensive update in the September quarter. The AC Pellets sale forecast remains unchanged despite deferred deliveries in June. The Kentucky plant provides direct access to a significant US addressable market opportunity for PFAS solutions, where Carbonxt is uniquely positioned to capitalise on the growing demand for clean technologies.
