The Tunisian fertilizer manufacturer Groupe Chimique Tunisien (GCT) and NACAG have signed a grant agreement for the purchase and installation of greenhouse gas abatement technology and monitoring equipment for GCT’s production facility in Gabès, Tunisia. It is estimated that roughly 400.000 tons of CO2 equivalent will be mitigated annually with the implementation of this measure. The closure of this grant agreement follows the commitment of Tunisia’s Government to ensure that nitrous oxide emissions from nitric acid production in Tunisia will effectively and permanently be mitigated in the future. Tunisia was the first country to sign NACAG’s Statement of Undertaking.
The signing of the first grant agreement under NACAG’s support programme marks an important step in NACAG’s journey towards a climate friendly transformation of the global nitric acid industry.
