Item 1.01. Conflict Minerals Disclosure and Report


Calgon Carbon Corporation (“Calgon Carbon”, “we” or “our”) has evaluated its current product lines and determined that certain products that we manufacture or contract to manufacture contain tin, tungsten, tantalum, or gold, which are defined as “conflict minerals” by the United States Securities and Exchange Commission that are necessary to the functionality or production of our products. Accordingly, Calgon Carbon is filing this disclosure along with a Conflict Minerals Report to disclose the measures we have taken to determine the origin of the conflict minerals used in our products.


Conflict Minerals Disclosure


We undertook due diligence measures, including surveying our direct suppliers via a survey template for conflict minerals, to try to determine the sources of these minerals, which we purchase through a supply chain.


Currently, we do not have sufficient information from our suppliers or other sources to determine the country of origin of the conflict minerals used in our products or identify the facilities used to process those conflict minerals. Therefore, we cannot exclude the possibility that some of these conflict minerals may have originated in the Democratic Republic of the Congo or an adjoining country and are not from recycled or scrap sources.


A copy of Calgon Carbon’s Conflict Minerals Report for the reporting period from January 1, 2013 to December 31, 2013 is filed as Exhibit 1.02 hereto and is publicly available at www.calgoncarbon.com, under the heading “For Investors”. The content of any website referred to in this Form SD is included for general information only and is not incorporated by reference in this Form SD.
