Our Mons, Belgium site purchases 100% renewable electricity. In 2021, we shifted 15% of the site’s electricity needs to solar cells. By the end of 2022, we plan to source an additional 15% of its electricity needs from additional panels.
We also invested in a reversible thermal oxidizer (RTO), which connects all 70 volatile organic compounds (VOC) emission points through pipes for on-site treatment. This also allows us to recycle sulfuric acid by reconcentrating it and reusing the 95% that is extracted, which reduces the primary waste stream.
