  • Today, it has become essential for corporations to address ecological challenges due to changing consumer behaviour and strict government regulations.
  • Companies are putting in efforts to limit pollution emissions using innovative cleantech solutions that meet compliance-related requirements. 
  • Specialised activated carbon products by Carbonxt Group capture harmful pollutants such as mercury and other contaminants in industrial processes. 
  • Following rising demand, Carbonxt sold out of its CTC pellet inventory in FY21 and continues to receive more orders for its products.
  • The company registered AU$9.9 million in revenue for the six-month period ended 31 Dec 2021, 38% higher on pcp.

The focus on minimising emissions and managing waste in today’s world is unprecedented as increasing number of individuals take proactive steps to mitigate environmental risks. Factors such as changing weather patterns, exacerbating health challenges, and deteriorating air and water quality have motivated people to exercise their power through purchasing decisions. 

Meanwhile, responding to the growing ecological challenges is not just a choice but an impertinent need for corporations as consumer behaviour changes and governments tighten the standards.

In the current scenario, many companies owing to the nature of their industries have been able to tick off the compliance-related requirements. Unfortunately, many others still need to limit pollution emissions, that often need innovative cleantech solutions.  

One such cleantech company is Carbonxt Group Limited  (ASX:CG1), which develops, and markets specialised activated carbon products to typically cater to the US market. These products capture harmful pollutants such as mercury and other contaminants in industrial processes.

The strong performance reflects several factors including increased economic activity at the tail end of the pandemic, higher natural gas pricing, warmer summer, and successful business development initiatives. 

Gross margin stood at 36% for the period, up from 26% in the year-ago period, principally due to increased sales volume combined with lower production costs across all product lines.
