The Sevalco plant in Avonmouth, Bristol, specialised in producing carbon black. Carbon black is most commonly used in the production of rubber in tyres. The site began production in 1951 and stretches across 20 arces. The recent downturn in car production and sales resulted in the plant stopping production at the end of 2008 with the loss of 88 jobs.
