Green Initiatives

MGC Pure Chemicals America (MPCA) addresses environmental issues proactively. We effectively use management to engage actively in environmental conservation and in pursuing green initiatives.  In addition to an extremely environment friendly manufacturing process, MPCA is continuing to look for ways to protect the envfironment and the surrounding community.  Below are some green intiatives MPCA is actively doing:


  1. Recycling of pallets, drums, paper and plastic to reduce waste sent to the landfill.


In early 2016, we started encouraging our employees to recycle consumables such as glass, cans and cardboard.  From 2012-2016 MPCA has recycled over 394,402 pounds.

In 2017 MPCA recycled:

  • 8,070 pounds of paper
  • 6,663 pounds of metal
  • 2,100 pounds of wooden pallets
  • 3,762 pounds of plastic pallets
  • 19,770 pounds of plastic drums


    2. Paper consumption reduction

Converting to electronic presentations and setting printers for double-sided printing by default has significantly reduced consumption.


  1.  Energy efficient materials of construction

MPCA is in the final stages of replacing fluorescent and sodium halide fixtures with LED across the facility.  We will reduce the overall environmental impact and operational costs, while improving the security and safety for our employees.  We plan on reducing our energy usage by 583,000 kW annually that equates to the following:


  1. Use auto-tire inflators on chassis to reduce wear on isotainer chassis tires 

°     Save one full set of tires per chassis per year



  1. Water Recovery

°      In 2017 Quarter 1, MGC Pure Chemicals plumbed our 2 Reverse Osmosis concentrate lines to a holding tank to be used for our cooling tower needs.  As of December 31, 2017 MPCA has recycled more than 3,300,000 gallons from this process.  That equates to 5.05 Olympic size swimming pools over each year.

°       MPCA is potentially looking into recovering our effluent waste water for other applications onsite.


  1.  Reduce cycle time for weekly emergency generator check
