Interview with Shine Carbon

Ahead of Carbon Black World 2024 we spoke to Biswajit Paul, Head of Quality & Technical Services at Shine Carbon.

Your presentation at this year's Carbon Black World will cover Specialty Carbon Black. Why is it important for others in the industry to hear this message? What are some of the key take-aways?

The topic of my speech on Carbon Black World 2024 is "Impacts on Local Feedstocks on Specialty Carbon Black" because specialty carbon black plays essential roles in many niche and high-end applications. Owing to the variation in properties of feedstock sources, very specific properties of those special blacks allow them to tailor-made the performance, durability, and sustainability of these products in the respective end applications. Thus, it is crucial for the carbon black industry to grasp the opportunities and challenges involved in specialty black products made from various local feedstocks available in India.

Shine Carbon has more than 40 years of experience in carbon black manufacturing. We are one of the suppliers that realises important substitution in the medium and high value specialty carbon black market in India by making special carbon blacks with local feedstocks.

The specialty carbon black unit of Ralson Group is fully responsible for the operation, management, and marketing of all specialty carbon black under Shine Carbon and Chemicals. This speech will be covering topics of two different types of local (Indian) oils on surface and rubber compound properties.

What are the main challenges that the industry is facing and how do you think that this conference can address them?

All the Indian carbon black industries have geared up to increase volume in the export market of the specialty carbon blacks owing to high value and long-term stability and also due to the supply restriction from Russia from July 2024.

Shine Carbon is not the exception and have also expressed its determination to promote the industrial upgrading of India's specialty carbon black through Carbon Black World 2024 platform, to improve the specialty carbon black industry and change the future of India's specialty carbon black industry.

What do you think will be some of the most interesting advancements in materials or processing in the near future?

As a part of the carbon black industry chain, rCB is in line with the needs of green and sustainable development of the industry, and it will take an increasingly good proportion in the material industry in the near future, and its application will be more and more extensive.

Increased adoption of digitalization and automation technologies in production processes will optimize/transform it to a low-energy consumption and green energy utilization process.

Also, the raw material selection of carbon black in the whole industry will be transferred to new recyclable materials from fossil because, low carbon emissions, renewable energy and clean raw materials will be the focus of the future development of the carbon black industry.

Create new opportunities by developing new carbon blacks for use in new applications.

What are you most looking forward to hearing and/or seeing at Carbon Black World 2024?

Carbon Black World is the world's leading forum focusing mainly on furnace carbon black processing and application respectively.

Therefore, I feel to be updated with technology sharing in different fields of upstream and downstream of the carbon black industry.

I want to learn and discuss the future development direction of the carbon black industry with other experts, and explore our technology development direction that is more in line with the needs of the industry.

I need to understand the carbon footprint and carbon neutrality goals through the meeting together.

I also expect the opportunity to highlight “Shine Carbon” as a speaker and I also like to present our products because I believe that professional & healthy competition, will encourage us for innovation and growth specially for non-tire segments.

I like to see an interaction among participants in a lively debate with the goal of opening up new channels of collaboration.
