Environmental Stewardship

Many companies talk about sustainability. For Merichem Technologies, it has been an integral part of our business for 75 years—developing solutions to reduce waste, remove contaminants, and facilitate the beneficial reuse of spent caustics.

Success Built Upon Environmental Responsibility

Merichem Technologies is hard-wired for sustainability. With initiatives on every front, we treat fuels or other process streams for mercaptans and sulfur compounds, and install our LO‑CAT® technology to eliminate H2S from gas streams.

As a long-standing member of the American Chemistry Council, we adhere to Responsible Care® guiding principles and are committed to conducting business activities in accordance with all applicable Environmental, Health, Safety, and Security (EHSS) laws and regulations for the benefit of our employees, customers, contractors, partners, and the community. This includes:

  • Monitoring performance and continual improvement through a management system compliant with the American Chemistry Council’s Responsible Care Management System
  • Practicing responsible environmental stewardship
  • Securing our facilities to ensure safe operations and continued supply of products
  • Maintaining dialog with communities about EHSS issues
  • Working with stakeholders to ensure our chemicals deliver their intended benefits to society
