Oil, Gas & Mining

We deliver solutions for gold recovery, subsea pipeline and industrial insulation, metal processing and more.

Purification and adsorption

We supply industry-leading activated carbon products for a wide range of oil, gas and mining applications. Activated carbon can be used to:

  • Purify biogas from undesirable compounds like hydrogen sulfide (H2S), siloxanes and volatile organic compounds (VOCs)
  • Purify gas treatment liquids, such as amines, to reduce foaming and corrosion; lower amine make-up, improve amine quality; and increase efficiency of plant operations
  • Adsorb gold-cyanide complex in carbon-in-pulp (CIP)/carbon-in-leach (CIL) systems or in columns after a heap leach operation (carbon-in-column systems)
  • Remove modifiers, collectors and depressants in flotation circuits and in copper, molybdenum, cobalt and nickel refining
  • Remove color and impurities from natural gas liquids (NGLs) in mid-stream gas plants to enable cost and energy savings
  • Remove larger hydrocarbons, carbon dioxide (CO2), nitrogen, hydrogen sulfide and traces of elemental metals like mercury from natural gas
  • Superior thermal performance

    Our innovative aerogel products can provide superior thermal performance across a wide range of temperatures from cryogenic to 600°C for industrial insulation applications. Additionally, aerogel insulation allows our customers to effectively meet transport challenges in subsea pipelines by delivering a superior solution that features ultra-low thermal conductivity and low loss in thermal performance over time.
