Chaney says zero-water discharge is an engineering approach to water treatment where all water is reused and recycled. This environmental achievement is possible due to a carbon dioxide water filtration system the company has installed, the company adds.
The concrete plant is expected to create approximately a dozen new jobs.
Additionally, the facility has earned Green-Star Certification from the National Ready Mixed Concrete Association.
The certification is earned by companies that use environmental management systems as a tool for continual improvement, the company adds.
The plant features dust suppression and dust collector equipment, white noise backup signals on all on-site equipment, pH treatment systems, and an all concrete parking and entryway.
CEO Francis "Hall" Chaney, III says: “Working with a time-restricted perishable product like concrete, reaching the Delaware beaches was a challenge for us previously. We are looking forward to supporting our customers, the community and the economy of Southern Delaware.”
