Filed under: Carbon Black — Notch @ 2:37 pm

Orion Engineered Carbons S.A. has signed a contract with Haldor Topsoe to install Topsoe’s sustainable emissions control technology, SNOX, in its carbon black production plant in Ivanhoe, Louisiana.

Prior to selecting the technology, Orion carried out in-depth analyses of the technology since 2014, including visiting the existing Haldor Topsoe plants and testing the concept at one of its manufacturing facilities.

“Orion is committed to environmentally friendly operation of its facilities,” said Jack Clem, CEO of Orion. “Our extensive research determined that the Haldor Topsoe SNOX system, suitably adapted by our technical teams over the last several years, was the most dependable and cost effective means of meeting or exceeding the requirements we now face.”

Under the agreement, Haldor Topsoe will be responsible for offering engineering, license, proprietary equipment, spare parts, catalyst, and future supervision tasks at the time of commissioning and start-up.

Orion’s SNOX plant is set to become fully operational by April 2021.
