Reducing Greenhouse gas emissions in Australia

Apr 29 2024

thyssenkrupp Uhde has reached a significant milestone in the fight against climate change with the successful completion of the EnviNOx® project for Dyno Nobel in Moranbah, Australia. This endeavour marks a pioneering effort in reducing greenhouse gas emissions, particularly nitrous oxide (N2O), in the Australian market.

By implementing thyssenkrupp Uhde's EnviNOx® technology, Dyno Nobel's nitric acid plant in Moranbah has witnessed a remarkable reduction in N2O and NOX concentrations, achieving levels below 5 ppm(v). This success underscores the effectiveness of EnviNOx® in curbing emissions associated with industrial operations.

The project entailed meticulous process engineering by thyssenkrupp Uhde, coupled with the deployment of its proprietary equipment, including the EnviNOx® reactor and catalyst provided by BASF. Dyno Nobel's commitment to sustainability is evident through its investment in this initiative, which is projected to mitigate approximately 200,000 tonnes of carbon dioxide equivalent emissions annually over a span of 20 years, akin to removing 50,000 cars from the road.

Lucretia Löscher, COO of thyssenkrupp Uhde, emphasised the significance of EnviNOx® technology in advancing environmental goals, affirming the company's dedication to facilitating carbon footprint reduction for its clients. This sentiment was echoed by Mauro Neves, CEO & Managing Director of Incitec Pivot Limited, highlighting the project's role in regional development and decarbonisation efforts.

EnviNOx® technology stands out as a leading solution for emissions reduction in industrial settings, with over 60 operational units globally. These units collectively mitigate more than 30,000 tonnes of NOX and approximately 70,000 tonnes of N2O emissions annually, contributing significantly to offsetting around 20 million tonnes of CO2.
