MILAN, Italy, July 15, 2008 -- CECA, a subsidiary of the ARKEMA Group, has been awarded a 4.5 million euro three-year contract from the City of Milan, Italy, for its eco-responsible activated carbon regeneration solution. The high quality water of the Milan Aqueduct (Metropolitana Milanese) treated with the activated carbon regenerated by CECA will supply the 1.3 million people living in and around Milan until 2011.

"Regeneration" is an ecological solution sought after by the City of Milan. In line with its sustainable development policy, the City of Milan has opted for the activated carbon regeneration process in order to minimise the impact on the environment. No need to take the end-of-life product to landfill; the spent activated carbon will be shipped via a shuttle system to CECA's Legnago site in Italy, the largest in Southern Europe, to be reactivated and then reshipped to the 20 Metropolitana Milanese sites .
