Badger mining receives environmental award.
Badger Mining Corporation (BMC), Berlin, Wis., has received the Wisconsin Manufacturers & Commerce (WMC) 2014 "Business Friend of the Environment" award in recognition of its environmental innovation efforts for the integration of geomorphic land reclamation at the Taylor Plant.
Geomorphic land reclamation is a landscape reconstruction technique that mimics original surface forms and drainage patterns of the natural landscape surrounding a mined area. It reduces erosion and water pollution, minimizes long-term maintenance and allows for a seamless transition into the surrounding landscape.
For 25 years, the WMC Business Friend of the Environment Awards has demonstrated to policy makers, businesses and the public how sound environmental practices are good for Wisconsin and its business environment. BMC has received this award twice previously, in 1997 and 1999.
"BMC's sense of responsibility to our neighbors, our desire to preserve the natural beauty and resources of our state and our interest in promoting a strong economic landscape proved all the incentive necessary to push beyond normal regulatory requirements," said Tiffany Martin, environmental team leader, BMC. "Environmental responsibility is one of our corporate values. The Environmental Team thanks everyone's support in believing in what we can do, but most importantly, doing the right thing for the environment and future generations."
