The Irwindale Chamber of Commerce Awards Blue Diamond Materials
January 5, 2009
The Irwindale Chamber of Commerce Environmental Committee awarded Blue Diamond Materials the 2008 Environmental Innovation Award for demonstrating smart green business practices. Blue Diamond received this award for implementing a new asphalt manufacturing process called Warm Mix. This innovative process requires less heat, thereby reducing the emissions emitted from the mixing and laying of the asphalt, creating a cooler working environment. Blue Diamond Materials also received the Certificate of Congressional Recognition from Hilda L. Solis, who is currently the United States Secretary of Labor.
2008 was the first year that the Irwindale Chamber of Commerce held the environmental award ceremony. All three of Sully-Miller’s divisions walked away with an award. United Rock Products received an award for innovative environmental efforts with its “Dust Abatement” program, and Sully-Miller Contracting received an award for energy conservation at our Irwindale location.
