In addition to what's being responsibly produced for the market, PCC promotes sustainability within our own walls. PCC is at the head of the class when it comes to the three R's:
- Recycling material whenever it can.
- Recapturing 100 percent of its production residual for additional use.
- Reusing 100 percent of the oil servicing production floor equipment.
Thanks to the investment in a state-of-the-art filtration system, PCC can use the same oil almost ten times over. The system has already paid for itself, confirming that being good to Mother Nature is good for the bottom line. We recently reduced our own carbon footprint in our Calumet City, Ill. manufacturing facility by replacing existing lighting with new energy-efficient lights. The 247 tons of CO2, 1,001 pounds of SO2 and 1,667 pounds of NOX saved by doing this project is equivalent to taking 40 cars off the road or the planting of 4,600 trees! We will continue to look for new ways to save even more.
