EMISSIONS MANAGEMENT AND CARBON FOOTPRINT

CDM PROJECTS

In 2006, the Company implemented the first Clean Development Mechanism (CDM) project to reduce nitrous oxide emissions from the nitric acid plant. As a result, CO2 equivalent emissions was cut by nearly 800,000 tons, the equivalent of 273,000 cars in one year.

Enaex’s two current CDM projects reduce process emissions by 85%. As a result, the emissions intensity of the ammonium nitrate produced at the Prillex America Plant is close to 0.3 tons of CO2eq/ton product, among the industry’s lowest.

The Company participates in the global fight against climate change with UN-Certified Reduced Emissions (CER), also called Carbon Bonds. In 2018, 781,000 CERs were generated and submitted to the World Bank to neutralize part of the emissions in the European Union.

CORPORATE CARBON FOOTPRINT

In 2018, CO2 equivalent emissions totaled approximately 1.02 tons, down 20% from 2017. This reduction in greenhouse gas emissions is primarily attributable to increased efficiency of the EnviNOx system, which reduces N2O emissions, as well as decreased use of inputs and integration of the national energy distribution systems, SING and SIC, which cut the emissions factor for network electricity by 40%.

Enaex began calculating its corporate carbon footprint using GHG Protocol methodology in 2009 and has had it independently verified since 2012.
