Cabot Corporation announced April 1 that it had successfully completed a major air emissions control project at its carbon black manufacturing facility in Franklin, according to a press release.

Cabot invested $85 million in emissions control technology that will result in improved air quality through the substantial elimination of NOX and SO2 emissions, which amount to 20 tons of combined emissions eliminated each day. Additionally, waste heat from Cabot’s plant is recovered and used to generate up to 50 megawatts of power, without creating additional emissions.

The announcement follows a platinum level rating from EcoVadis in recognition of its sustainability efforts and being named to America’s Most Responsible Companies 2021 list by Newsweek for the second consecutive year.
