“I am glad to announce that we have closed the agreement with H+H,” Yara senior vice president and industrial segment head Yves Bonte said in a statement. “Our core business addresses some of humanity’s biggest challenges, such as pollution of the environment. The H+H acquisition significantly increases our capacity in the emission to air reduction market, fitting well with Yara’s strategic goals as our air pollution abatement solutions are a growing part of our business. These cost-effective solutions make good business sense for our customers, enabling them to comply with stricter legislative requirements all while leaving a positive impact on their communities.”

H+H designs and provides SCR exhaust gas treatment systems for the reduction of nitrogen oxide emissions from marine engines and stationary land engines. Founded in 1998, H+H is based in Hargesheim and has more than 800 installed SCR units in activity around the world.
