GE Water & Process Technologies honors Ineos with its Ecomagination Leadership and Return on Environment (ROE) awards to recognize the petrochemical manufacturer for its reductions in water usage and associated costs savings on its KG ethylene plant at its petrochemical complex in Grangemouth, Scotland.

Faced with a water cooling system that was limited to four cycles due to calcium phosphate and calcium carbonate scaling, the KG plant team collaborated with GE Water & Process Technologies to address these issues and increase the cycles of their cooling water. Water & Process Technologies provided its GenGard corrosion treatment chemistry, TrueSense cooling water technology and InSight asset performance management (APM) system. 

The GE Water & Process Technologies Ecomagination Leadership award recognizes the achievements of industrial users for striking a positive balance between today's economic, industrial and sustainability challenges. It is given to the top customers in environmental and economic performance. The ROE award honors significant environmental (water, energy, resource) accomplishments.

Grangemouth is Ineos’ largest manufacturing site by volume of products, according to GE. It is reportedly home to Scotland’s only crude oil refinery and produces the bulk of fuels used in Scotland.
