Unimin is committed to the conservation of the finite resources in its care. Plants operate with state-of-the-art technologies to minimize water and energy consumption. Some locations additionally employ renewable energy sources including hydro-power and bio-gas to help preserve limited natural resources. Good resource management also means responsible and efficient utilization. Mine planning, process engineering and production management are tasked to optimize land utilization and minimize our operational footprint.
There is no "one size fits all" approach to resource management. Unimin applies an entrepreneurial approach, tailoring our best practices to plan, manage and restore mining operations based upon the unique characteristics of each property. A corporate environmental officer coordinates the activities of environmental professionals to ensure operations are consistent with our commitment to sustainability.
Through leadership, commitment and diligence, we endeavor to be a good neighbor.
