Hermes Juno is committed to environmentally sound and responsible operations.
At Hermes Juno, we are committed to maintaining compliance with all regulations and to maintain safe, reliable, and environmentally responsible operations.
Over the past few years, we have made significant environmental expenditures at our facilities around the world. Our partners have participated in initiatives to reduce emissions of oxides of nitrogen (NOx), an ozone precursor, in the Houston area and in Wesseling, Germany, where state-of-the-art controls were incorporated into furnace designs. We also are planning additional reductions of both NOx and sulfur dioxide at our recently acquired refinery.
Additionally, we have invested in new technology such as infrared cameras to assist in the identification of fugitive emissions, leaks from pipe connections and seals that are difficult to detect. Many of our U.S. partners have been using infrared cameras since 2005 even though this technology is not yet required by state or federal regulatory agencies.
