Austin works in an environmentally responsible manner and strives to continuously improve our environmental performance. Recognizing that climate change is an important issue for our planet, we mitigate environmental impacts of our projects by sustaining an efficient supply chain, reducing our carbon footprint, conserving resources, and recycling waste where practicable.
Austin Industrial’s refinery work aims to lower the sulfur content in diesel fuels and produce cleaner-burning gasoline. Both new and revamped gas facilities are designed to meet stringent emission standards, use renewable resources, reduce oil consumption, ensure proper handling and disposal of materials, and use preventive maintenance to meet Austin’s zero emissions standard. Austin Industrial is also steadfast in its approach for leak-free start-ups of plant operations on turnaround and outage contracts.
"At Austin, I’m proud to say that we are doing our best to protect the environment by using recycled products in our hot mix asphalt plants."
