Environmental Honors

Our site recently earned two Sustainable Growth Awards for:

  • Commercializing a new type of surface treatment products
  • Response to Hurricane Katrina

In 2005, Hurricane Katrina pounded the Gulf Coast, and First Chemical Pascagoula suffered significant damage to electrical and mechanical systems. However, because of careful pre-storm preparations, the site's environmental control systems performed as designed, and there were no adverse environmental impacts. The site was repaired and back in operation in record time, just five months later.

DuPont and First Chemical Pascagoula are leaders in "sustainability," or environmentally responsible manufacturing. First Chemical Pascagoula has reduced water emissions by half and air emissions by one third since 2000. This facility is proof that a "green" approach is good for business, as we continue growing our company through the introduction of new environmentally beneficial products and services.
