Italy based RadiciGroup has bagged a Product Stewardship Award from Federchimica, the Italian Chemical Industry Federation in recognition of its achievements on the sustainability front.

The award is bestowed on Federchimica member companies that have excelled in their commitment to responsible product management.

RadiciGroup was specifically recognized for testing the Organisation Environmental Footprint (OEF) and Product Environmental Footprint (PEF) methodology for calculating and communicating the environmental performance of its products.

The testing was carried out at Radici Chimica SpA – a production site in Novara engaged in the production of PA6.6 and related intermediates.

Radici Chimica signed a voluntary agreement in July 2013 with the Italian Ministry for the Environment to use the PEF method to assess, measure and quantify the reduction in the environmental impact of polyamide 6.6 and its intermediates attained through an emission abatement plant built at the Novara plant.

“We are proud of the award as this recognition will inspire us to pursue our sustainability objectives through concrete actions, with even greater determination and perseverance,” Paolo Radici, member of the board of directors of Radici Partecipazioni SpA said.

“For Radici Chimica the Product Stewardship Award represents recognition of the concrete action taken to lower the environmental impact of the emissions associated with the processes and products at the Novara plant,” said Stefano Alini, corporate quality manager of RadiciGroup.

According to RadiciGroup, among the most relevant results of PEF testing were the changes made to the nitric and adipic acid production plants at Radici Chimica, which led to a significant reduction in greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions.

A comparison of 2011 and 2014 data shows a drop in GHG emissions of 63 per cent for the nitric acid plant and 33 per cent for the adipic acid plant.

“Furthermore, the PEF methodology has brought to light significant improvement in other indicators as well, such as acidification, terrestrial eutrophication and photochemical ozone formation, and has shown that there were no negative environmental impacts on other matrices,” it added. (AR)
