Environmental activities

The Cortec Corporation, whose headquarters has been ISO 9001 and ISO 14001 certified for 10+ years, is dedicated to preventing environmental pollution, conserving natural resources and continual improvement of the environmental performance of their products, services and processes. Cortec Coated Products has a robust recycling program and has become more energy efficient by working with Focus on Energy to create an innovative heat-recovery system and plant-wide lighting and steam trap upgrades. These improvements will save the company more than 223,000 kilowatt-hours of electricity and 175,000 therms of natural gas annually - enough energy to power 200 Wisconsin homes for a year. The annual environmental benefits are equivalent to offsetting 3,500 barrels of oil from being burned - eliminating 2.4 million pounds of carbon dioxide (CO2) from being released into the atmosphere. As a part of Green Tier, Cortec Coated Products will continue working with consultants to reduce energy consumption and the facility is implementing an ISO 14001 Environmental Management System.
