Keith Huber Corp. of Gulfport is a new associate member for Mississippi Department of Environmental Quality's enHance program for the 2016 class.
The facility, working with new owners and mentor Hol-Mac Corp., implemented a weld flux recycle program, reducing the potential landfill disposal of 1938 pounds per year and used rain water to replace evaporated and residual loss water used in a hydro test procedure. It's projected to reduce water usage by 420 gallons per year.
The voluntary stewardship program begun in 2009, enHance recognizes committed environmental leaders who accomplish goals beyond their legal requirements. The program is open to facilities, cities, counties and other entities.
