Trinseo is celebrating the 10th anniversary of its Lomax technology at its plant in Dalton, Georgia. The plant runs largely on alternative energy, significantly reduces carbon dioxide (CO2) and greenhouse gas emissions, thanks to manufacturing process of Lomax Technology. Lomax Technology uses methane gas collected from a nearby landfill as the primary energy source to manufacture Trinseo’s latex binders. The methane is piped to a landfill gas energy recovery facility and then to the Trinseo plant, where the energy is used to power the plant’s boiler. This virtually eliminates the need for natural gas. Read More
