Every day our products are used to deliver clean water to millions of people in Australia and around the world

In almost every Australian city and around the globe, our products are instrumental in the delivery of safe, clean water.

For over 110 years, James Cumming & Sons has pioneered the use of Australian coal for industry. Since the 1980s the company has led the market in the use of bituminous coal as a means to effectively deliver environmentally friendly filtration for water and wastewater purification and the use of activated carbon for air and water purification and soil decontamination.

We use only the highest grades of Australian coal as the basis of our products. We never compromise on the quality of our products.

Today the company’s internationally recognised products help eliminate the health risks associated with water and soil polluted by contaminants such as hyrdocarbons and dioxins. Our products are right at the core of the ongoing successful operation of water treatment, wastewater management and desalination plants across Asia Pacific and the Middle East.
