Morgan Advanced Materials has announced that it has been recognised as a winner in the 2022 Manufacturing Leadership Awards for its outstanding achievement in Sustainability and the Circular Economy.
Winners in the ‘Sustainability and the Circular Economy’ category, undertake net zero initiatives, seek innovative methods for product and materials reclamation, and show a broad and deep commitment to sustainability. This is achieved through product design and end-of-life strategies, meaningful metrics, and/or sustainable practices both internally and across supply networks.
Winning the award has enabled Morgan to showcase their significant progress in embracing manufacturing processes that minimise pollution, conserve energy and consumer fewer natural resources.
Over the past decade, for example, the St. Marys, PA, site is just one of Morgan’s manufacturing facilities completing projects which reduce the site’s energy intensity, water use, and waste.
The site has experienced significant successes in areas such as conserving energy and natural resources, reducing pollution and hazardous waste, reclaiming materials, and establishing an environmentally safe workplace. The initiatives are accelerating environmental improvements and are already driving significant cost savings. These accomplishments have also helped to support a wider Morgan initiative, thinkGREEN.
Mike Koscho, Global Director of Operations, Morgan Advanced Materials.
