Thyssenkrupp launches its 35th EnviNOx system in a move to reduce greenhouse gases close to zero

November 29/2021

MOSCOW (MRC) -- Recently, thyssenkrupp Uhde successfully commissioned its 35th EnviNOx system, a patented technology for the reduction of nitrous oxide emissions, which reduces greenhouse gases close to zero, according to Hydrocarbonprocessing.

The process converts environmentally harmful nitrous oxide (N2O) and other nitrogen oxides into nitrogen, oxygen and water. At the latest installation for Arxada in Switzerland, annual emissions of N2O 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 countrys 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.

The EnviNOx technology was originally developed for emission reduction in nitric acid plants and has already been installed in 35 chemical plants worldwide since the first installation in 2003. More EnviNOx systems are already ordered from various customers and will be installed and commissioned during the next months.

As MRC reported earlier, thyssenkrupp Industrial Solutions subsidiary Uhde Inventa-Fischer signed a contract to build a new world-scale polymer plant for Yurek Polimer Bursa, Turkey. The plant is planned to produce 300 metric tons per day (108,000 tons per year) of polyethylene terephthalate (PET) for low viscosity applications. The PET melt produced by thyssenkrupp technology will then be converted into PET Chips, as well as pre-oriented yarn.

According to MRC's ScanPlast report, September estimated PET consumption in Russia increased to 56,960 tonnes, up by 10% year on year. Russia's overall PET consumption reached 592,560 tonnes in the first nine months of 2021, up by 12% year on year.
