Orion Engineered to install emissions control technology at Louisiana plant
Orion Engineered announced that it has signed a contract with Haldor Topsoe to install Topsoe's sustainable emissions control technology, SNOX, in a Carbon Black production plant for the first time. By combining Topsoe's proven SNOX system with Orion's capabilities in Carbon Black, the technology will remove SOx, NOx and dust particles from tail gases at Orion's Ivanhoe, Louisiana, plant and reach the standard required by the U.S. EPA as a result of a settlement to install certain control equipment at its facilities in the United States. Orion also is planning a cogeneration facility at the Ivanhoe Plant to utilize energy from the production process to supply electricity for this new control technology, the current manufacturing processes and for the surrounding communities. Discussions with the local electricity utility are underway.
