Pensacola, Panama City and Port St. Joe
Arizona Chemical’s three facilities in the Florida Panhandle (Pensacola, Panama City, and Port St. Joe) have been involved in numerous voluntary projects over the past 4 years which go beyond regulatory compliance and demonstrate leadership in environmental management and continuous environmental performance improvement. Their goal is to treat ecological resources, societal needs and economic viability with common care, recognizing their essential contribution to the quality of life in the Gulf Region. Projects have resulted in reductions in air, water, and waste discharges which go beyond regulatory requirements for the benefit of environmental protection, resource conservation, and sustainability. Projects were completed through team efforts from facility employees, engineering, technology, manufacturing, and environmental staff. These projects have reduced air and wastewater emissions, water consumption, waste disposal, and energy use. The results are quantifiable and are confirmed by USEPA for participation in the National Environmental Performance Track (NEPT) Program.
