  1. Business activity


The Company's carbochemical activity is based on the distillation of high temperature coal tar which is obtained as a by-product in coke manufacture used in blast furnaces to produce pig iron.

Química del Nalón, S.A. develops its carbochemical activity at the Trubia site, in a set of autonomous plants, designed with the Company's own technology, which operate as a fully-integrated unit. Química del Nalón, S.A. is the most important distiller in Southern Europe and one of the most important international pitch and naphthalene manufacturers.

Linked to the carbochemical activity, there are port facilities in AVILÉS (Spain) and SZCZECIN (Poland), used as a logistics centre for the Baltic area and Eastern Europe.

Química del Nalón, S.A. buys its raw material, coal tar, from various approved suppliers located in Europe, Africa and America. This diversity of tars of different and complementary qualities guarantees the homogeneity and consistent quality, allowing us to offer all types of pitches for the aluminium and graphite industries.
