BOSTON – August 13, 2020 – Cabot Corporation will increase prices by $.03 per pound on all carbon black products sold by its Reinforcement Materials segment in North America, effective October 1, 2020, or as customer contracts allow.

In particular, Cabot is investing in the range of $200 million for NOx and SOx reduction projects to meet US EPA requirements, with additional spending for operating expenses and ongoing sustaining and improvement projects. Cabot was the first manufacturer in the carbon black industry to reach an agreement with the EPA to minimize air emissions and is on track to meet upcoming industry deadlines in 2021 and 2022. Taken together, these expenditures and the associated price increase will enable continued quality and supply security for Cabot’s customers and sustainability benefits for its employees, customers and communities.
