Making A Difference

about us

Established in 1973

Since our beginning in 1973 with two production units, Cancarb has brought quality and dependability to customers throughout the world.  Now with 5 production units and a 6th under construction, thermal carbon black production from clean natural gas continues to be all that we do.  With a constant focus by the entire team on quality, sustainability, and reliability, we have Thermax® where you want it, when you want it. Being accountable to our planet is important to us and we take it seriously.  From continual yield improvement initiatives to reduce, reuse & recycle programs, we are acting every day to ensure a clean and healthy planet for future generations.  We even use the heat from our production process to create high pressure steam that we use to generate electricity that powers approximately 20% of the City of Medicine Hat.  This results in a reduction of approximately 90,000 tons of Greenhouse Gas (GHG) emissions that would otherwise be needed to satisfy that power demand.

We will never stop working to improve!
