Dortmund/Germany – Recently, thyssenkrupp Uhde successfully commissioned its 35th Envinox system, a patented technology for the reduction of nitrous oxide emissions which reduces these greenhouse gases close to zero. The process converts environmentally harmful nitrous oxide, i.e. laughing gas (N2O) and other nitrogen oxides into nitrogen, oxygen and water. At the latest installation for Arxada in Switzerland, annual emissions of laughing gas will be reduced by at least 98 %, saving up to 600,000 tons of CO2-equivalents per year. This is a significant contribution to the country’s climate targets.

“The whole chemical industry faces the challenge of protecting the climate while growing profitably. With the realization of emission reduction solutions such as Envinox, we are really making an impact”, says Sami Pelkonen, CEO thyssenkrupp Uhde. “We focus on the development of sustainable solutions to make existing and new plants as environment-friendly as possible – up to completely climate-neutral chemicals such as green ammonia.”
