Oxbow Brazil Energia
In 2007, Oxbow Carbon LLC, teamed with a local family-owned enterprise and opened the first of two petroleum coke storage yards. We opened our first storage yard in the port town of Cabadello, and our second in Baracarena, Brazil. Combined, these facilities can handle up to a million metric tons of petroleum coke annually, which is used primarily for the cement and steel industries. We have approximately 35 full time employees dozens of outside contractors, all of whom live in the neighboring communities.
Cabedelo is the larger and older of our two storage facilities. This petroleum coke storage facility is located in the state of Paraiba. Oxbow opened the 24.7 acre facility in 2007. The storage yard blends and screens petroleum coke for the steel and cement industries.
Building Strong Communities
As part of Oxbow’s commitment to give back to the local community in which it operates, the company has annually donated to the local Cabedelo elementary school system, funding computer science labs and other initiatives for residents in this port town.
Barcerena, the smaller petroleum coke storage facility, is located in the state of Para. Oxbow opened the 11 acre site in 2012 to support the growing steel and cement industries. The facility has blending and screening capabilities.
