Tronox has ten TiO2 plants, two plants in the United States, one in England, one in France, one in Saudi Arabia, one in China, one in Netherlands, two in Australia and one in Brazil.
Our Bahia plant in the Salvador metropolitan region employs 2,500 direct and indirect employees. Its operating license is awarded by the state environmental agency (Inema). The Company’s license renewal is due to its ongoing commitment towards:
developing actions to resolve environmental liabilities left by former managements;
mitigating damage inherent to the production process, reducing atmospheric emissions, liquid effluents and waste generation;
seeking improvements in industrial sustainability using Cleaner Production criteria;
taking actions to ensure better co-existence with surrounding communities;
maintaining a zero-penalty approach during the previous license period.
