Huntsman Pigments: Top Prize at IChemE Awards
Huntsman Pigments won the top prize at the IChemE 2011 Awards ceremony for its revamped site in Calais, France. The company was awarded the "Outstanding Achievement in Chemical and Process Engineering Award" (sponsored by BP) after turning a site threatened with closure into a thriving new revenue stream. In 2008, the future of Huntsman’s Calais site looked gloomy, being difficult and expensive to run. However, by turning waste filter salts into sustainable fertilizers and securing new markets, Huntsman now has plans to build a new £25m fertilizer plant on the site.
More than 400 guests from all over the world were in Birmingham, UK on November, 3 for the event celebrating chemical engineering innovation and excellence.
