The article reports on the decision of Haifa Chemicals, Israel's producer of specialty fertilizers, to reduce nitrous oxide emissions of its chemical plants. The chemical company is installing equipment to reduce the output of nitrous oxide from its four nitrate producing plants. Haifa Chemicals is investing $900,000 in the equipment. The company said that as well as reducing nitrous oxide emissions, the equipment will convert them to nitric acid, enhancing the plants' efficiency.
