Konsberg Norspace do not need special discharge permits. We use (have) a small quantity of chemicals, and all chemicals and waste is sorted and retrieved by a waste disposal company. 
The disposal company ensures proper disposal in accordance with applicable laws and regulations.
A large liquid nitrogen tank outside our building provides nitrogen gas to our production lines. Nitrogen is a harmless gas - the air contains 79% nitrogen. The white fog sometimes seen around the base of the tank is frozen water from air cooled by the cold areas around the gas.
To reduce possible disturbing noise from our facility we turn off the ventilation after working hours.
