Huntsman’s titanium dioxide pigment manufacturing facility at Greatham has won the Institution of Chemical Engineers (IChemE) Chemical Engineering Project of the Year Award 2014. The award was presented to the Greatham team for the Improved Chlorinator Efficiency (ICE) Transform project that has helped improve the site's efficiency by giving the site more feedstock flexibility. Steve Sutcliffe, technology expert for the chloride process at Greatham, accepted the award on behalf of the Greatham project team.

At the ceremony, IChemE president, Professor Geoff Maitland, explained how the IChemE Global Awards represent the hard work, inventiveness and achievements of thousands of chemical engineers across the world.

It is the 2nd time this year that Huntsman’s Greatham site has been recognised for this project that also won the Chemical Industry Association’s ABB Manufacturing and Resource Efficiency Award in May 2014.

The IChemE Global Award ceremony was hosted by BBC News’ Kate Silverton and held at Cheltenham Racecourse on November 6, 2014.
