We use and transform natural resources, limestone and water, in the most efficient way to maximize their functional purpose and minimize waste generation. Carmeuse aims at using 100% of what is extracted from the earth and leaving 0% waste behind.
Throughout every production phase, Carmeuse strives to implement and apply the best technology and practices towards energy use, air emissions, alternative fuels, and carbon emissions. In all of these practices, we monitor the overall consumption of resources and output of emissions in order to continuously improve and advance our operations towards optimum environmental efficiencies.
One of the best examples of our monitoring practices is in our kiln operations. We have progressively increased emissions control programs to assure conformance to industry and government regulations and to provide the cleanest conditions for the communities around us.
