Environment

One of our most important priorities is to protect the environment. That is why we continually look for new ways to reduce waste, improve efficiency and promote “clean manufacturing”. We buy only recycled aluminum for use in our castings.

Perhaps most important is our sand reclamation process. Rather than send used sand from our casting operation to a landfill, we use an in-house reclamation process that collects, bakes and purifies sand for reuse in new molds. Each year, this allows us to recycle more than 9,000 tons, or 97 percent of the sand we use.
Bodine Aluminum is proud to do our part to preserve the environment. While we do not do it for the accolades, we appreciate being recognized for our hard work now and again.

The International Standardization Organization (ISO) has awarded Bodine the ISO 14001 environment certification. The ISO is a worldwide federation of national standards groups from 100 countries that certifies organizations. The 14001 standard refers to a company's ability to meet specific requirements for managing and reducing environmental impact. Of approximately 3,000 foundries across the United States, only 1% has achieved this certification. Bodine Aluminum is proud to be one of them.
Bodine Aluminum has also been recognized by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) for achieving a 10 percent reduction in energy intensity through its ENERGY STAR Challenge for Industry program. Recognition is only awarded to individual industrial sites. To gain recognition, the company must be an ENERGY STAR partner. Bodine achieved this honor by making sustainable energy improvements to its equipment and process.
