Our Commitment to Growth, Quality and the Environment

Rotocarb’s vision to become the largest producer of Activated Carbon in South Africa is focused on water treatment. Water is a scarce resource in our country and Rotocarb is committed to offering high quality local Activated Carbon products at competitive prices to the water treatment industry. We provide proudly South African-made Activated Carbon products that protect human health and the environment from contaminants in water through the bimodal adsorption capabilities of our macadamia nut shell Activated Carbon.


Our carbons bridge the gap between coal and coconut shell carbons by offering a special blend of characteristics from both of these carbonaceous sources: high bimodal adsorption capabilities, hardness, surface area and low ash content.


We embrace the principle of the triple bottom line for sustainability by converting a shell waste stream into a desirable product in an autogenous process. Rotocarb has integrated the local Levubu community, creating employment and developing local infrastructure in an earnest effort to contribute to South Africa’s socio-economic developments. In the next three years, Rotocarb plans to quadruple its production and, with that, empower local communities through further job creation.


Rotocarb is a proud member of the Water Institute of Southern Africa (WISA) and strives to spread awareness and create passion for water throughout Africa in partnership with WISA. 


It is just the beginning for Rotocarb, however, the future is bright with a dynamic, skilled and enthusiastic team.
