Croda US Launches Renewable Energy Project

June 11, 2012

New Castle, DE site to use landfill gas to power Atlas Point plant.

Croda is constructing a $6 million landfill-gas-to-energy project at its Croda Atlas Point chemical manufacturing plant in New Castle, DE. Croda will use landfill gas from the nearby Cherry Island Landfill. The project is expected to be completed in September.

The reclaimed landfill gas will provide enough renewable energy to power 55% of the plant's operations, and enable Croda to reduce its annual greenhouse gas emissions equivalent to removing 33,000 passenger cars from the road.

"Croda has a global goal to obtain 25% of its energy needs from non-fossil sources by 2015," explained Kevin Gallagher, president, Croda Inc. "We are excited that this venture will help us achieve that goal."

Croda is investing $5.5 million in the project, and is receiving a$550,000 grant from the Delaware Energy Efficiency Investment Fund.
