​Carbon Dioxide Cut by Reusing Drums


Carbon Dioxide Cut by Reusing Drums--------

Baltimore, Apr 01, 2020

Saving 512,919kg of CO2 is equivalent to 462 flights from Baltimore to Dubai. That’s the amount elkem saved by using reconditioned (cleaned and reused) transport drums.

Recycling industrial packaging is just one of the ways elkem reduces CO2.

It also has an integrated produsible system that recycles byproducts. This strategy supports the responsible use of resources. It avoids waste and thus minimizes emissions.

A key aim of elkem’s strategy is to lower emissions so that its ecological footprint shrinks:

·50 percent reduction in specific energy consumption by 2030(versus 2008)

·30 percent reduction in specific emissions by 2030(versus 2012)

To this end, Elkem focuses continuously not only on its processes for integrated production, for energy efficiency and for carbon capture and utilization, but also on harnessing the new potentials of the circular economy and fossil-free steam generation.
