Calgon Carbon Corporation Unveils New Identity at WEFTEC 2009

PITTSBURGH, PA  –  10/12/2009

Calgon Carbon Corporation (NYSE: CCC) today launches the company’s new logo during the 82nd Annual Water Environment Federation Technical Exhibition and Conference (WEFTEC) in Orlando, FL, October 10-14, 2009.

Commenting on the logo, John Stanik, Calgon Carbon’s president and chief executive officer, said, “Our new logo reflects our heritage of employing granular activated carbon to solve challenging purification problems. The re-positioning of the ellipse symbolizes our vision for Calgon Carbon going forward and our confidence that the unprecedented global opportunities before us will drive significant future growth for our company.”

For more than 60 years, Calgon Carbon has been a world leader in developing and applying activated carbon technology to remove impurities from liquids and gases. The company is carrying on that tradition by providing activated carbon products for two new applications. Calgon Carbon’s powdered activated carbon is being used to remove mercury from coal-fired power plant flue gas, and its granular activated carbon is protecting millions of Americans from harmful by-products that can form when chlorine is used to disinfect drinking water.

The company’s cutting-edge ultraviolet light (UV) technology ensures that consumers are protected from pathogens in drinking water that pose a serious health threat. Currently, Calgon Carbon’s UV systems are treating billions of gallons of drinking water every day in North America and Asia.

In Asia and Europe, the company is expanding its reactivation and service capabilities in response to increased demand for activated carbon and associated services for a number of fast-growing applications.
