"Our technology systems and reagents resulted in customers cutting more than one million tons of NOx emissions in 2013."
Yves Bonte, Head of Industrial
In 2013 we took new steps to expand our business, particularly in the market for NOx abatement solutions. We significantly strengthened our capacity to meet demand for Diesel Exhaust Fuel (DEF) in North America, and we took over ownership of the NOx abatement technology for commercial vessels from the joint venture Yarwil. In January 2014 we also acquired H+H Umwelt- und Industrietechnik GmbH, adding to our leading position in NOx abatement solutions for maritime and industrial applications. Furthermore, the launch of two new, dedicated liquid CO2 vessels supports our growth ambition in this market.
