NORDOX has signed the Norwegian Responsible Care Commitment (MIA), which requires integration of environmental, health, and safety policy in its management plan.

The manufacturing plant operates with a closed circuit system for its process water. Hence, there is no emission other than clean steam. Fumes and dusts are filtered and well within the environmental standards.

Cuprous oxide is a well-proven active ingredient in antifouling paints and agricultural fungicides, widely accepted as environmentally sound. Copper is an essential trace element in all living organisms – animal and plant – and thus a standard ingredient in mineral supplements for animal feeds and fertilizers. However, due to its role as a fungus and fouling repellent, regulatory authorities require full documentation as to its effect on health and environment. NORDOX participates in international working groups to respond to such requirements.
