Yara International, a leader in emissions control for ships, industrial plants and heavy-duty vehicles, has acquired H+H Umwelt-und-Industrietechnik GmbH, which produces Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR) systems for secondary NOX reduction in marine and stationary land engines.
NOX reduction is a big issue across numerous industries, including cement. NOX control requirements will come into force in emission control areas across the world’s territorial waters with the implementation of new International Maritime Organization regulations.
This acquisition makes Yara a one-stop shop for both major secondary NOX after-treatment equipment and the chemical reagents needed to operate them. This complements Yara’s existing Selective Non-Catalytic Reduction (SNCR) technology.
Senior Vice-President and Head of Yara’s Industrial Segment, Yves Bonte, said: “Our proven air pollution abatement solutions are a growing part of our business. This is a major milestone in Yara’s strategy to offer a total NOX emissions control package for industrial plants, ships and heavy-duty vehicles.”
Founded in 1998, H+H is based in Hargesheim, Germany and currently has over 1200 installed SCR units around the world.
“Our proven SCR systems are a good match for Yara’s scale in reagent supply and its SNCR Systems expertise. Together, we are even better positioned to help customers around the world achieve their environmental targets in a reliable and cost-effective manner,” says H+H Managing Director, Michael Heck.
