Off-gases from Shin-Etsu’s oxy reactors are burned in an AkzoNobel treatment unit. This new, recently commissioned flue gas treatment unit absorbs HCl from these flue gases. It enables us to meet tightened emission requirements. Shin-Etsu is paying for this investment. The first measurements are very promising. They show that the new chimney is emitting no HCl whatsoever.
