We have an overriding commitment to environmental responsibility and actively pursue a balance between economic results, development of industrial capability and sustainability. We constantly strive to minimize the environmental impact of our products, activities and operations wherever they may be in the world. Our R & D activities are driven by the strong desire to reduce our environmental footprint (i.e. less pollution - NO2 and CO2), energy-reuse, recycling) and improve our efficiency (i.e. less energy consumption, less raw material waste, cost reduction in production and increased plant efficiency).
