Sid Richardson partners with the community
Millions of dollars have been returned to Texas communities through the Sid Richardson Foundation which was created to improve schools, hospitals and other public institutions. The Bass family has been a great patron of Fort Worth. They have restored much of the downtown area and have enhanced the arts by building the Bass Performing Arts Hall. They are also a patron of one of the largest collections of western art housed at the Sid Richardson Museum of Western Art. With the help of the Bass family, Fort Worth has returned to its old west glory.
SRCE plant personnel in Addis, LA; Big Spring, TX; and Borger, TX are deeply involved in many local projects and causes. Keeping the company connected to community schools, businesses and city government creates exemplary citizenship and leadership in their respective communities.
The Environmental Health and Safety department actively monitors all existing and planned operations to ensure compliance with federal, state and local regulations. Pollution control methods employed in the carbon black plants include high efficiency bag filters for in-plant containment of the product, and the incineration of waste gases. Captured energy from the carbon black production process is used to generate electricity at two Sid Richardson Carbon & Energy Co. facilities. This significantly reduces greenhouse gases, which is helpful to the environment. SRCE also uses feedstock with low levels of sulfur in order to produce as little GHG emissions as possible.
Sid Richardson Carbon & Energy Co. is committed to conducting business in an environmentally responsible manner in order to protect our employees, the environment, and the communities where we operate. Achieving this commitment is a primary management objective and the responsibility of all employees.
