An important part of KMI’s Mission Statement and Core Values are our commitment to the environment. Inspections are performed and documented daily for air compliance and weekly for storm water and spill prevention to ensure compliance with our EPA permits. Annual audits for compliance with stormwater and spill prevention are performed by an independent registered professional engineer. Our employees receive various levels of training for air, water and HAZMAT compliance.
We exceed the minimum requirement for tuning burners in order to keep them operating at peak performance. Over the years, we have installed “warm mix” systems on all of our plants. This produces asphalt mixes at lower temperatures. The combination of burner tuning and warm mix systems help reduce fuel usage and ultimately plant emissions.
At our annual spring kickoff meeting, KMI recognizes each plant and terminal employee who goes above and beyond our environmental requirements. KMI is also part of the National Asphalt Pavement Association (NAPA) Diamond Achievement program. The program recognizes plants for their commitment to safety, the environment, operations, and community relations. We are proud to say that nine of our asphalt plants and one terminal has reached this distinction.
At Kokosing Materials, we strive to be good neighbors and corporate citizens in areas where we operate.
