Camden, N.J.—Invista, one of the world’s largest producers of polymers and fibers, is seeing a significant reduction in air emissions as a result of its fully operational natural gas boilers at its nylon fiber manufacturing site near Camden, N.J.
Because of the $30 million project, Invista Camden anticipates a reduction in more than 50,000 tons per year of carbon dioxide. This is equivalent to removing more than 9,500 passenger vehicles from the road, according to EPA.gov. In addition, Invista Camden expects a reduction in more than 1,250 tons per year of other air emissions.
“This project signifies INVISTA’s continuing commitment to environmental excellence,” said Juan Flores, site manager at the Invista Camden plant. “In addition to significantly reducing air emissions, we expect the new boiler system to also increase the efficiency of Camden’s power operation.”
