BERWYN, US: 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.

The resulting steam energy runs approximately 95 percent of the manufacturing processes at the plant. Because the methane is being harnessed for energy instead of being released into the atmosphere, Lomax Technology helps mitigate emissions by reducing Trinseo's use of fossil fuels. This allows customers to develop high-performance products with sustainable attributes.

The latex binders manufacturing site in Dalton was the first to install this technology in 2007. From carpet backing and paper coatings to multiple adhesives and construction applications, latex binders made with Lomax Technology provide lower environmental impact with maximum performance.

Lomax Technology reduces the carbon footprint of carpet backing by approximately 25 percent, enabling the customers to make flooring products more durable and more sustainable. Styrene-butadiene (SB) latex made with Lomax Technology provides the same performance characteristics of conventional latex, yet comes with a lower environmental footprint, a particularly important feature as demand continues to increase for more sustainable products across the entire industry's supply chain.
