Chemieliva has made substantial investments to better preserve the environment.
【Air emissions 】
in all our sites, off-gases are conveyed to scrubbers for neutralization. A further treatment using activated carbons, cryogenic condensation, regenerative thermal oxidation, or incineration is also performed as appropriate.
【Liquid wastes 】
Except for Amino Chemicals which necessarily sends all liquid wastes for treatment to external authorized waste disposal companies, our Chinese operations apply a chemical-physical and biological treatment to the liquid wastes. Some of these wastes containing solvents are incinerated, and the heat generated is used to cover part of our steam requirements, thus reducing our consumption of energy.
【Solid wastes 】
Solid wastes are transferred to authorized waste disposal companies. Where applicable, solid wastes are recycled.
