ENVIRONMENT, HEALTH AND SAFETY

Environmental Policy

Owl’s Head Alloy's Environmental Policy is to protect, utilize, and manage our natural resources to prevent pollution and continually improve the air, water, and earth we inhabit. Owl’s Head Alloys maintains a commitment to fulfill all compliance obligations. The company’s main goal is to provide excellent customer service while ensuring we take the correct measures from an environmental standpoint. Our environmental policy highlights the framework, procedures, and efficiency given out by the company to ensure we are providing safety to the community, employees, and the environment. Owl’s Head is mindful of the impact that is done through our daily operations and has made sure procedures are implemented to find solutions.

This will be supported by state-of-the-art facilities and equipment, well-defined processes, and excellent training programs. The management will adopt a culture that fosters integrity, a sense of responsibility, and continual improvement through compliance with the ISO 14001 standard for Environmental Management System.

Promoting the Health and Well Being of the Environment

 

OHA understands the critical importance of minimizing the impacts and of maximizing the opportunities related to the environment through the processes and operations required to produce our products. Since our inception, our team has worked to meet and exceed environmental regulations to prevent and minimize adverse environmental impacts by:

 

  • Using over-sized hoods for the capture of emissions

  • Using separate bag houses for each furnace

  • Reducing waste emissions and discharges from operations

  • Improving the efficiency of our natural resource consumption

 

The secondary aluminum market continues to thrive today largely because of the energy savings in the secondary market versus the primary.  The energy required to melt and recover aluminum from scrap and dross is only 5% of that required to produce aluminum from bauxite ore. This 95% energy savings greatly lowers the overall impact of the industry’s operations on the environment.
