SGD Pharma to rebuild furnace at Saint-Quentin-Lamotte plant

SGD Pharma has announced a high performance rebuild of one of the two furnaces at the Saint-Quentin-Lamotte (SQLM) manufacturing plant in France.

This rebuild is part of an ambitious global decarbonization strategy and will contribute to a two-thirds reduction in the total carbon emissions of the company by 2040.

This project, which will cut the SQLM CO2 emissions by almost 20 percent, will have two phases that both reduce the consumption of natural gas while increasing the use of electricity on site.

The SQLM furnace rebuild accelerates the electrification of one of the two furnaces (yielding a 40 percent increase in electricity output), the other furnace already being 100 percent electric for many years. The project will also deliver a 50 percent reduction of gas consumption in the forehearths.

This ambitious investment project is partly financed by the French government as part of France 2030, (operated by ADEME) and in part by the European Union – Nextgenerationeu / REPOWEREU.
