Joined by Guus Boekhoudt, Vice President of Guardian Glass in Europe; Jose Miguel Villacorta, Dudelange Plant Manager, and Jean Ries, Director Government and Public Affairs Guardian Europe, the Minister witnessed the massive installation that greatly reduces plant emissions from the float glass process, specifically NOx, SOx and dust.
The control system has been fully operational for four months now, and ensures the Dudelange plant complies with the recent limits set by the Luxembourgish Environment Agency and with the EU Industrial Emission directive. A similar system was installed at the Guardian Glass Bascharage, Luxembourg plant in 2013.
“With this new emissions control system, Guardian Glass affirms its commitment to the efficient use of natural resources while operating in a way that protects the safety, health and well-being of its employees, the environment and the communities in which it operates”, said Guus Boekhoudt.
