It is important for industry to look closely at the valorisation of waste streams. The Dutch chemical company Croda has thought about how to use the residual streams - in this case glycerin - efficiently. In the Quarterback project Croda has completely eliminated this waste stream and uses the energy for biogas fermentation. Croda was rewarded on the 1st of  June 2017 with the Responsible Care Prize of the VNCI.

The project is smartly set up, it has been fully integrated and supported by the parent company. An enthusiastic, beautiful example of thinking from one's own chain. The savings are a good example of Responsible Care. The project led to 25% CO2 reduction for the whole company. In addition, there is 7700 tonnes less of glycerin transportation per year. It is also positive that Croda involves the local environment: the residents are informed about the changes in the process.

The jury is impressed by the project. Jury Chairman Gert-Jan de Geus: "Croda is working hard to show leadership in Responsible Care. The project is a good example of long-term thinking in a project with a longer payback period, but with support from corporate and the sustainability of project management and management results in an excellent RC project. "
