Calgon Carbon has secured a $1.35m grant from the Ohio Third Frontier's Energy Program for the development and commercialization of advanced activated carbons for energy storage.

The project intends to develop and manufacture a source of activated carbon specifically designed for the ultracapacitor energy storage applications.

Production of the activated carbon at Calgon Carbon’s facility in Ohio, US will address dependence on overseas manufacturers and help to avoid supply disruptions.

Calgon Carbon, along with Case Western Reserve University, JME, and Novolyte Technologies, as well as Maxwell Technologies, will collaborate on the Energy Program.

US Based Calgon Carbon is engaged in services and solutions for making water and air safer and cleaner.

The Ohio Third Frontier is a bipartisan economic development initiative that provides funding for technology areas that represent Ohio’s key competitive opportunities.
