Holliday Pigments invests in facilities.

Holliday Pigments has invested 2M [euro] in an effluent treatment plant (ETP) at its main manufacturing site in Comines, Northern France. Following the 7.5M [euro] implementation of a flue gas desulphurization (FGD) plant in 2004, the site is now the world's largest ultramarine manufacturing plant complying with all European environmental laws. This latest initiative further supports its goal to achieve ISO 14001 Environmental Management Standard certification by year-end 2010 and has been funded, in part, by the European Environment Agency (EEA) in Artois-Picardie. The European Union body has pledged a 10 year loan of 1.19M [euro] and converted 225,000 [euro] of this amount into a grant as part of an ongoing technical and financial partnership. Additional funding was provided by Holliday Pigments' parent company, Rockwood Pigments.
