On February 9th, 2010, ERMCO reached yet another milestone. Qualifying under the Tennessee Department of Environment and Conservation, Division of Air Pollution Control TAPCR permitting guidelines, all ERMCO emission sources were exempted from air emission permits. Only landfill, city wastewater (NPDES), and state stormwater permits remain with this exemption.
ERMCO’s commitment as an environmental steward has paved the way toward meeting and exceeding the guidelines established under ISO 14001. In 2015, ERMCO installed Reflect and Duo solar systems. These combined systems can produce approximately 500 kW, which feed into the local utility lines. The lines feed the Three-Phase Operation and allow ERMCO to reduce its power requirements from the local utility.
