Announcement on Plant Operations and Planned Maintenance Outage at Cancarb Limited

Cancarb Limited will be commencing its annual maintenance shutdown effective April 12, 2023.
During this planned outage, both the thermal carbon black plant and the power plant will be offline. Production will resume on an intermittent basis with full plant operations expected to resume on approximately May 8th, 2023.

The thermal carbon black plant will be offline for routine maintenance for approximately 12 days, resuming operations on a gradual basis. The waste heat recovery power plant will be offline for approximately three weeks for required maintenance and inspections. While the power plant is offline, waste heat from the carbon black process will be released periodically through the bypass and/or reactor stacks until the power plant resumes operations. This will be performed in compliance with the Company’s approved operating conditions.

Progress updates on this outage will be provided at

Hydrogen Fuel Cells

Elastomer Sealing Performace in Hydrogen Fuel Cells using Thermax 990. Partnership with RD Abbott, Cancarb, & Arlanxeo.


Thermax® application Refractories Thermax® carbon black can improve performance of monolithic, castable, carbon brick and basic carbon brick refractories. It can enhance resistance to thermal shock, heat, chemicals and active slag, increase refractory density, and improve in-situ carbide formation. Castables containing Thermax® require less water to reach normal casting flow, resulting in higher density and […]
