Nitrous oxide (N2O) is a greenhouse gas (GHG) that contributes to global warming. It is 265 times more effective at trapping heat in the atmosphere than carbon dioxide (CO2) and is often overlooked. Ascend Performance Materials has a plant in Cantonment, FL, where they voluntarily chose to add a new absorption system that captures and destroys N2O emissions from their process. This is the largest voluntary N2O abatement project in North America and results in improving local air quality due to a significant reduction of emissions that otherwise would have been released into the atmosphere. Ascend’s safety and environmental performance guides their commitment to zero: zero personal injuries, zero process safety incidents, and zero environmental releases. This project is third-party verified and registered through the Climate Action Reserve (CAR) Registry.
