As we continue to focus on developing innovative solutions to address the earth’s energy challenges, Styron Emulsion Polymers business has created LOMAX™ Technology. LOMAX™ Technology uses renewable energy (currently landfill gas) to manufacture our latex carpet backings, which reduces greenhouse gas emissions and assists customers in developing high performance products with sustainable attributes.
*If the landfill gas was not collected as part of LOMAX™ Technology, the following would occur:
- Landfill gas escapes into atmosphere as greenhouse gas
- It has the same impact on the climate as approx. 17 million pounds of carbon dioxide/year – equivalent to emissions of approx. 13,500 cars per year
