Arkema Inc. and Nippon Shokubai American Industries, Inc. (NAII), through their joint venture American Acryl L.P. in Bayport, Texas, which manufactures acrylic monomers, are strengthening their commitment to accelerate the decarbonization of energy sources by entering into a long-term power purchase agreement with EDF Energy Services, LLC (EDF) intended for 100% of their expected annual energy usage supplied by wind power.

EDF Renewables North America, the renewable energy affiliate of the EDF Group, will supply the American Acryl Bayport site with renewable wind energy from a portion of its King Creek Wind Farm 1 LLC in Haskell and Throckmorton counties in Texas.

“This agreement further implements Arkema’s commitments to reduce GHG emissions by 46% by 2030 relative to 2019 under its reinforced climate plan in line with expectations of the Paris Agreement to contain global warming to 1.5°C.,” said Richard Rennard, president, acrylic monomers, Americas at Arkema.
