Saving energy at Covestro

Covestro’s Antwerp site is an important producer of base chemicals for the plastics industry. An uninterrupted supply of electricity and energy in the form of steam is crucial for the company. Covestro heavily invested in 2015 and 2016 in the renovation of its steam production, by constructing state-of-the-art high pressure steam boilers and realising a cogeneration unit in cooperation with Engie-Electrabel. Thanks to this installation, Covestro is saving 24,000 tons of CO2 and 500 TJ of primary energy a year, a reduction of more than 12% for the Antwerp site.
