A well established German company, active in the field of activated carbon production, is producing a high-quality doped activated carbon for technical applications. The company is looking for experienced distribution partners in all regions covered by the EEN. The partnership is envisaged as a distribution services agreement or commercial agency agreement.
The company, located in the Northeast of Germany is well established on the market and operates as one of the largest producer of activated carbon in Germany since 2006. The company is primarily processing regional renewable raw material from hardwoods. Combined with meticulous control throughout the production process the company is able to produce activated carbon with superior application characteristics. Activated carbon is used in many technical applications, including the cleaning and desulfurization of gases for example in biogas plants. The problem, however, is that the activated carbon, used in these processes, loses its activity in the course of time and therefore its filter capacity. This leads to a permanent need for a renewal of the activated carbon material. The innovation and reason for the technical superiority of the activated carbon produced by the company is partly realized due to the applied manufacturing techniques as well as due to the use of different (sugar-based) additives. Unlike other products, the chemicals used, the later catalysts for e. g. the desulphurisation, already come into play during the production process of the activated carbon and are not applied afterwards as it is common practice. This leads to an increased performance potential in addition to the good general adsorption performance and a special performance in the field of chemisorption due to chemical modification. As a result of the efforts, an activated carbon with a higher absorption potential and a longer service life is created. The production process to be used has been created in cooperation with well-known German research institutes. In addition to active carbon, the company also offers the technical facilities for integration into the filtration process such as different filter housings. The production of the activated carbon as well as the packaging and warehouse management are in the hands of the company. The combination of the delivery quantity and packaging can be realized in a broad spectrum acording to distribution requirements. For logistic purposes the company is directly connected to the biggest intermodal transportation hub of the region, and with the help of logistics partners it is able to deliver via ship and truck. Potential partners and customers are free to organize the logistics on their own according to their requirements. Transportation and customs clearance for foreign customers can be arranged as well. The company wants to expand its export business and is now looking for trade intermediaries all over Europe (agents and distributors specialized in the sale of high quality activated carbon) on the basis of a distribution services agreement or commercial agency agreement. The SME is interested in a cooperation with partners that are looking for producers of high quality doped activated carbone in order to sell it under their private labels are also welcome. The suitable partners should have a good knowledge of the local market.
Innovations and advantages
By a homogeneously distribution of chemicals within the activated carbon, the later catalysts for desulfurization, throughout the active carbon matrix, provides the active carbon with special chemical properties. This provides the following advantages for the user: - The introduced catalysts can be effectively used for the desulfurization of the gas - High loading capacity of activated carbon - The entire pore system is freely accessible and is available for adsorption processes - No impregnation of activated carbon - Achieves significantly longer service life The free pore system and the good general adsorption performance are also advantageous for the adsorption of siloxanes or hydrocarbons.
