We've Cleared The Air On Airborne Emissions
Airborne emission standards in the United States are closely regulated, with strict standards for ozone and carbon monoxide emissions based on the type and amount of fuel used. Since all of our American Gypsum plants use natural gas, the cleanest burning fuel, we comply 100% with the government standards.
We also have fuel efficiency programs that have helped reduce our emissions over the past few years. Our EPA approved Compliance Assurance Monitoring plans guarantee that all of our facilities are as clean as possible based on the current technology available. We achieve this with daily visual and equipment inspections.
With our fuel efficiency and compliance monitoring programs, we've been able to produce airborne emissions that are 99.9% water vapor. And American Gypsum is committed to continue making all products as environmentally friendly as possible.
