Calgon Carbon Corporation 's CCC fully-owned subsidiary, Calgon Carbon Japan (CCJ) announced that it has inked a contract with Mitsui & Co. Plant Systems, Ltd. to supply pelletized activated carbon.

CCJ's activated carbon products will be made at its Fukui, Japan facility, from where they will be distributed by Mitsui to Wisconsin Public Service Corp.
