Total energy use in 2015 was just below our 2006 baseline and decreased relative to 2014.Production intensity increased in part because of lower production levels.

 

Our total carbon dioxide (CO2e) emissions in 2015 are below our 2006 baseline and decreased relative to 2014. Production intensity increased in part because of lower production levels.

 

Total hazardous air pollutant emissions decreased in 2015 compared to 2014. Production intensity increased in part because of lower production levels.

 

Both hazardous and non-hazardous waste totals decreased in 2015.

 

Disposal of non-hazardous waste decreased in 2015 and remains below the 2006 baseline, as it was in 2014.

 

Hazardous waste disposal for 2015 continued to decrease as it did in 2014, yet it remains above the 2006 baseline. Production intensity increased in part because of lower production levels.

 

For five consecutive years, chemical oxygen demand (COD) levels continued to drop compared to 2010 levels and are well below our 2006 baseline. Reductions are due in part to tighter permit limits and additional government controls over discharges. Production intensity increased in part due to lower production levels.

 

Overall water use is down due to lower production rates and increased efficiencies in some locations. Production intensity increased in part because of lower production levels.

 

In 2015, Huntsman had an OSHA Total Recordable Incident Rate (TRIR) of 0.43, not including the performance of the acquired Pigments and Additives businesses (former Rockwood sites.) This rate is slightly above last year’s 0.40 TRIR and remains significantly below the 2014 U.S. Chemical Industry Average of 2.30.

 

By the end of 2015, company-wide implementation of Huntsman’s world-class process safety management standard reached 95 percent completion.
