Seeking to improve its environmental performance indicators, in the period 2001-2010, Tosoh Hellas completed a series of projects that drastically improved its environmental footprint. The most important of these are listed below:

  • Replacement of high sulphur content crude oil with natural gas;
  • Development of an environmental management system in line with the international ISO 14001 standard;
  • Installation of a meteorological station;
  • Extension of the road damping system and connection of the system to the meteorological station;
  • Installation of sound reduction equipment to reduce noise levels at the dust removal systems on the final product grinders and dust removal systems at the Final Product Processing Department;
  • Replacement of the absorption stack with a new, higher capacity one, to curb H2S emissions generated during the sulphiting process;
  • Replacement of condensers containing PCB insulators with environmentally-friendly condensers;
  • Installation of instruments to automatically monitor dust emissions from the End Product Processing Department;
  • Installation of an odour removal system at the electrolysis unit; and
  • Installation of a system to evaluate suppliers and subcontractors based on their environmental performance.
