The Netherlands: Supply for Salt Production Nouryon Increases Use of Sustainable Steam
Nouryon and other firms based at Chemical Park Delfzijl in the Netherlands will save up to 100,000 tons of CO2 emissions per year through the increased use of sustainable steam. The company will use the additional supply to make its salt production at the Delfzijl site more sustainable.
Delfzijl/The Netherlands — The sustainable steam will be produced by utility firm EEW Energy from Waste, which has been supplying steam from waste combustion to the chemical park since 2010. The latest increase follows the commissioning of a third waste combustion line and the construction of a new pipeline by Groningen Seaports. The chemical park also receives bio-steam from the nearby Eneco biomass plant.
The speciality chemicals company has also increased the use of bio-steam at its Hengelo site in the Netherlands. It also initiated a unique green energy purchasing consortium, enabling the construction of two Dutch wind farm projects — Bouwdokken and Krammer. Currently, almost half of the company’s worldwide energy usage is from renewable sources.
