Huntsman’s new cogeneration facility in Italy
18 Юни 2015


Huntsman has completed on 01/07/2014 its € 38 million investment within its titanium dioxide plant in Scarlino, Italy. The cogeneration installation will provide heat and power to Huntsman’s whole plant. The operation of the new facilities is expected to reduce the carbon intensity of the site by around 30%.

First of all, within the framework of a broad-scope energy performance contract, EDF Fenice, the energy services subsidiary of EDF group, has designed, achieved and pre-financed the new 12,5 Mwh cogeneration facility. The investments amounts to €17 million. For 15 years, EDF Fenice will be responsible for the turnkey management of the energy assets of the site.

In addition to the new heat and power co-generation facility, a new iron sulfate plant has been built to use a wider range of feedstock to produce pigments. In the meantime, it will allow to reduce the co-produced gypsum and to convert spent acid - resulting from production process - into iron sulfate products for wastewater treatment plants, animal feeds and cement market.

Scott Anderson, Huntsman Pigment’s Vice President for eco products, manufacturing and technology said: “The new plant will help to transform our efficiency, sustainability and cost effectiveness. It will help make the whole site more competitive and sustainable.”
