Focused on Energy Conservation and More
most significant contributions to the sustainability of our planet and public
health lie in the many Grace products that deliver direct, measurable, and
significant environmental benefits to our customers' products. Examples include
produce ultra-low-sulfur diesel fuel; catalysts that support renewable diesel
fuel production; catalysts that control refinery sulfur oxides (SOx) emissions;
FCC additives that significantly reduce nitrogen oxide (NOx) emissions and
sulfur; catalysts that improve combustion of CO; non-phthalate polyolefin catalysts; auto emission control catalysts; paint and wood coating
matting agents allowing low- or no-Volatile Organic Compounds (VOC); pigment
additives that allow heavy metal-free anti-corrosion coatings; silica-based
processing agents that reduce water use and solid waste in the production of beer; and
much more. Grace continues to focus on delivering innovative products that
contribute to our customers’ overall sustainability strategy and goals.
As a manufacturing
company, Grace constantly strives to be a good steward of the environment and as
efficient and productive as possible. This minimizes our energy requirements
and reduces waste, which helps keep our products competitive while delivering more
value to our customers.
Our 2007 10-year commitment
Grace remains committed to finding new opportunities to minimize our environmental footprint. In 2007, we published a commitment based on a simple measure of energy intensity. While much has changed since then—including a diversification of our product lines, overall growth, and much more—we nevertheless achieved an overall reduction in energy intensity across our global operation.
Grace continually pursues new opportunities to manage and minimize our environmental footprint.
Grace completed the separation of its Construction Products operating segment on February 3, 2016. The environmental data reported above excludes the separated operations.
