THE WOODLANDS, Texas (Dec. 5, 2011)—Rubicon, Huntsman Corp.'s joint venture with Chemtura Corp., has earned the Louisiana Chemical Association's “Best in Louisiana” distinction for its facility in Geismar, La.
The chemical production plant was recognized for its commitment to superior safety, environmental performance and community involvement, Huntsman said.
Rubicon was designated “Best in Louisiana” among its LCA peers (facilities with more than 400 employees) that competed in this year's Serious About Fostering Excellence program.
The SAFE awards are based on safety and environmental compliance information submitted to state and federal regulatory agencies, as well as facilities' abilities to demonstrate significant involvement in their surrounding communities, according to the statement.
The plant spends more than $40 million annually on environmental, health and safety compliance and environmental improvement performance, Huntsman said.
