At KRONOS we actively manage our environmental footprint to reduce material waste and pollution in adherence with applicable laws and regulations. However, we go beyond compliance to achieve greater environmental stewardship and beneficial reuse in the areas of waste and material use. We focus on minimizing waste generation and promoting a circular economy by converting by-products to co-products via additional processing. These co-products have multiple applications including beneficial reuse and enhanced sustainability in other industries. We actively look for new and unique opportunities to promote the circular economy.
The cornerstone of our pioneering efforts is ecochem®, a division of KRONOS established nearly 50 years ago. We are extremely proud of KRONOS ecochem®, which provides significant economic and environmental benefits to the company and maximizes our stewardship through beneficial reuse of material that would otherwise be discarded as waste.
