Based on highly developed production technology, Elkem converts natural resources into products that society cannot do without. This process involves resource and energy consumption and emissions. Elkem is committed to continuously improve the company’s environmental performance.
Two of Elkem’s most important environmental initiatives involve efficient use of energy and energy recovery. In addition, the environmental focus for 2015 has been on activities to ensure compliance with the EU water directive and to further reduce the level of dust emissions. For the EU water directive, information collection through recipient surveillance and analysis is still the main focus. For dust emissions, a number of successful initiatives have been implemented at different plants and measurements show improvement in many areas.
