With around €93 million sales, Arkema’s Activated Carbon and Filter Aid business employs over 300 people, who will now be joining the American group Calgon Carbon, a leader in activated carbon and in purification and filtration solutions.


With this divestment concluded for a €145 million enterprise value (9.5 x Ebitda), Arkema actively continues the Group’s refocusing on its core businesses, after finalizing the divestment of Sunclear in November 2015, which represented sales of some €180 million.
