US Siemens facilities earn ISO 14001 certification

1 min read

The Siemens facilities in question are carbon reactivation facilities in Parker, Arizona, Red Bluff, California, and Darlington, Pennsylvania, and a waste and wastewater treatment facility in Roseville, Minnesota.

Siemens is the only activated carbon services supplier with Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA)-permitted reactivation capacity serving both the East and West Coast of the USA. The Siemens facilities in Pennsylvania, California and Arizona have safely reactivated more than 500 million pounds of spent carbon throughout the past 22 years. The Roseville facility in Minnesota is one of two fully-permitted, RCRA centralised waste treatment facilities owned and operated by Siemens that treats hazardous and non-regulated wastes and recovers water and metal commodities for reuse.

To receive ISO 14001 certification, a plant must monitor its usage of hazardous chemicals, minimise the harmful effects on the environment caused by its activities and improve its green performance.

“We always strive for continuous improvement for our company, and these certifications are further proof that Siemens has an ongoing commitment to servicing its customers, protecting the environment and reducing its carbon foot print,” said Jagannath Rao, president of the customer services division, Siemens Industry.
