Carbonyx, Inc., Plans Carbon Alloy Production Plant In Millwood, West Virginia – Area Development
Carbonyx™s patented, cutting-edge technology revolutionizes the way steel is made, the company said. For centuries, steelmakers have relied on coke, a high-carbon, hot-burning fuel source, to manufacture their product. Carbonyx has developed a coke substitute called Cokonyx, a carbon alloy that offers both lower cost and less environmental impact than traditional coke.
We are excited and honored to welcome Carbonyx to West Virginia, Gov. Earl Ray Tomblin said. “Carbonyx is a tremendous innovator in the steelmaking business–and they’ve decided to invest right here in the Mountain State because of our top-notch workforce and winning business climate.
This company could have chosen anywhere in the world to build this plant, and they chose Jackson County,” Gov. Tomblin added. “This means an investment of tens of millions of dollars and at least 60 good-paying jobs, which is great news. The plant’s impact will reach beyond Jackson County: Carbonyx will use West Virginia coal to produce a key ingredient for steelmaking, which is in demand from major steel companies. This announcement is a huge victory for our entire state.
The Jackson County Development Authority and the Jackson County Commission also played key roles in securing the Carbonyx investment
