MOSCOW (MRC) -- Showa Denko KK (SDK) has confirmed that its process to produce "low-carbon ammonia" from used plastics at its Kawasaki Plant (Kawasaki City, Kanagawa Prefecture) emits more than 80% less GHGs (including CO2) than other conventional processes to produce ammonia from fossil fuels, said the company.
SDK has confirmed this GHG reduction effect with a method of calculation whose conformity with ISO has been certified by Japan Life Cycle Assessment Facilitation Centre (LCAF), which is an independent observer.
Thus, SDK has confirmed its low-carbon ammonia's excellent environmental performance with a method certified by a third party as the only case in Japan.
We remind, Showa Denko has decided to license its technology to produce vinyl acetate monomer (VAM) to Asian Paints Limited, a leading paint and decor company in India. In addition, SDK will provide Asian Paints with catalysts to be used for the company’s VAM production.
