W.R. Grace aims to reduce energy use by 20 percent

February 09, 2010

As part of its sustainability strategy, W.R. Grace is aiming to reduce the energy consumption of its operations by 20 percent per pound of production over the next seven years and make annual reports about its progress in reaching that goal. A leading supplier of catalysts to petroleum refiners and other products, Grace will use 2007 as the base year against which it will measure progress. In that year, it produced nearly 2 million tons of products and had carbon dioxide equivalent emissions of 1.1 million tons.
