Our atmospheric protection activities are based on a comprehensive analysis of our emissions. Efforts to reduce air emissions—particulate matter, nitrogen oxides (NOx), sulphur oxides (SOx), volatile organic compounds (VOCs) and hazardous air pollutants (HAPs)—are supported by capital investments, integration of cost-effective technologies and innovative operating practices. Regular monitoring of our emissions to air from all of our sites is a part of environmental management at Avient.
All Avient manufacturing facilities strictly comply with applicable regulatory requirements regarding emissions limits and hold valid air permits where required. While conventional air emissions are a critical and a highly-influential topic in some industrial sectors, as a specialty formulator of purchased materials, Avient’s conventional air emission levels from legacy operations are de minimis and not material.
