FIVE: PLAN FOR ENVIRONMENTAL STEWARDSHIP
As a further factor for selecting a sand supplier, evaluate their habitat conservation strategy, land reclamation plan, and water conservation efforts.
Since its first day of production in 2015, the Wisconsin Proppants Hixton mine has been committed to safety and environmental compliance, as recognized by the industry with a 2018 Mine Safety and Health Technology Innovations Award from the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH).
Our Kermit mine operates with a Texas Conservation Plan (TCP) Certificate of Inclusion for more than 1,000 acres of land. Our approved conservation plan for the Dunes Sagebrush Lizard (DSL) goes beyond mitigation with both state and local authorities and environmental groups. Our wet pile dewatering technology is designed for maximum water conservation, and we use a high-efficiency dust collection system on all dryers to manage environmental exposure to silica dust.
