Nalco Honored for Safety and Energy Efficiency

The American Chemistry Council (ACC) has recognized Nalco for employee safety at a number of manufacturing sites across the United States. In addition the ACC singled out an energy efficiency project at the Ellwood City Plant for an award.

Twelve Nalco plants received a Responsible Care® Facility Safety Award, with all locations earning the highest level of achievement – a Certificate of Excellence. The certificate goes to facilities based on achievements in safety and health for both employees and contractors working at the sites. Nalco was one of 39 companies honored for safety. The Nalco sites receiving certificates are: Clearing, Ellwood City, Evansville, Freeport, Garyville, Montgomery, Odessa, Port Allen, Scott, Texarkana, Tulsa and Vancouver.

A project to reduce electricity usage at the Ellwood City South Plant won one of 14 Responsible Care® Energy Efficiency Awards given for significant improvement at a manufacturing site.

The change reduced electricity usage by more than nine percent (nearly 300,000 kWh) a year, even though production volume increased more than 18 percent. The reduced electricity use eliminated 194 metric tons of CO2, reducing greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. A related energy-reduction project was recently put in service at the North Plant; it will reduce energy usage by chillers in the latex production area by using ambient air cooling during the winter months. Several extensive lighting efficiency projects have also been completed, or are underway, at both plants.
