The ACC announced the Hexion awards at its virtual 2020 Responsible Care Conference & Expo.  These awards relate to the following projects:

Waste Minimization Category: Springfield, Oregon: In 2019, Hexion’s Springfield site was able to reduce wash water disposal (and freshwater usage) by 95 percent of disposal volumes over the previous year. After analyzing water usage, the facility identified all sources of wash water, potential receptors for wash water and efficiencies to consume wash water. Once identified, designs and modifications were implemented to existing process equipment to store, blend and beneficially use wash water as a raw material to partially replace freshwater makeup.

Energy Efficiency Award: Morganton, North Carolina: Hexion’s Morganton facility upgraded its process unit for air pollution control (thermal oxidizer) in 2017. The facility did not experience the expected increase in natural gas usage efficiency. As a result, a team was assembled to troubleshoot the issue with the objective of reducing natural gas consumption. The team used a combination of engineering fundamentals, statistical data analysis, mechanical knowledge, and supplier application support to reduce natural gas consumption and improved total site gas efficiency by 13.8 percent per million BTU/pound compared to the previous year.

Facility Safety Award – ACC presents these awards to member companies with significant achievements in employee health and safety performance. In total, 13 of the Company’s sites received the ‘Excellent’ distinction: Acme NC, Alexandria LA, Argo IL, Deer Park TX, Diboll TX, Fayetteville NC, Geismar TX, Hope AR, La Grande OR, Louisville KY, Missoula MO, Moreau NY, Springfield OR.
