A consortium formed by EVONIK Degussa GmbH,
Cabot Corporation, Columbian Chemicals Company, Timcal Belgium S.A.,
Sid Richardson Carbon & Energy Company, Continental Carbon Company,
and Cancarb Limited has successfully submitted the REACH dossier for
carbon black to the European Chemicals Agency (ECHA) in Helsinki.
After validating the completeness of the dossier, ECHA issued the
registration number for carbon black to Evonik Degussa GmbH which
acted as lead registrant on behalf of the consortium. The submission
included both the technical dossier and the chemical safety report.
Once the remaining consortium members file their supplementary
registration documents, all seven companies will be fully registered
well ahead of the November 2010 deadline. The consortium invites
other interested companies to participate in the joint submission of
the Carbon Black Consortium by way of a letter of access.
