We at TCE are committed to reducing our carbon emissions. As a low-carbon producer, we pride ourselves in playing our part to help the UK Government reach targets for the reduction of carbon emissions, and are always investigating innovative ways in which we can reach their greener goals together.
From 2021, as a result our investment to build the UK's largest Carbon Capture and Utilisation plant, Tata Chemicals Europe will be making one of the lowest carbon footprint sodium bicarbonate and sodium carbonate products in the world. These chemicals are used to make many everyday items seen in many households. Find out more about this project here.
Another great example of our commitment to low carbon emissions is our £2.5m steam turbine, which sits in our CHP plant and was unveiled in 2016.
The electricity that the turbine helps to generate saves 71,000 tonnes of CO2 in the UK, which goes a long way in helping the Government meet decarbonisation requirements of a 75-percent reduction by 2030.
