US Aluminum Castings

 

DOE Energy Seal

LEAN - GREEN

US Aluminum Castings is proud to operate an Evironmentally SOUND facility.Some of the "GREEN INITIATIVES" that US Aluminum Castings has implemented include:

Wastewater: 1.) Installed additional oil removal equipment to treat oily waste stream(s) to a greater extent than required by our Wastewater permit issued by Washington State Dept. of Ecology
   
   
Air Quality: 1.) Replaced our propane-fired melt furnace that burned over 300,000 gallons per year with a clean, electric-powered induction melting furnace.
   
2.) Worked with core resin suppliers to identify and sample "low smoke/low odor" resins to improve our indoor air quality and reduce our overall foundry emissions.
   
   
Recycling: 1.) We recycle all scrap metals generated on site. These metals include aluminum, iron and steel. The aluminum is made up of grinding fines, impure oxides and dirt from our furnaces and chips from our machine shop. The iron and steel is waste from our maintenance activities and from obsolete or worn out molds. 
   
2.) We capture and bundle our cardboard for recycling back into new cardboard.
   
3.) We recycle silver from our X-ray department. Our state-of-the-art recovery unit collects 99.999995% of the silver from the chemical waste stream and from the film itself.
   
4.) We receive most of our materials on wooden pallets. We recycle those pallets unfit for immediate re-use to pallet recyclers who rebuild the pallets to as-new condition.
   
   
Energy: Our source of power to run our plant is clean, green hydro power generated 10 miles away at Chelan County's Rocky Reach Dam.
 
 
 
"We at US Aluminum Castings believe wholeheartedly that we are stewards of this Earth. We make every effort to capture and recycle those materials we do not sell as finished aluminum castings. We have and will continue to recycle whenever we can. It makes good earth-sense."
