BARTON Environmental Stewardship

BARTON’s business is built on the responsible use of natural resources. We have developed and implemented an extensive environmental management system to: identify potential impacts from our mining and processing operations; establish protocols to minimize those impacts; and ensure compliance with all applicable environmental laws and regulations.

Our commitment to environmental stewardship also goes beyond offering high-purity, environmentally and worker-friendly products. It even includes how we operate our corporate offices.

Clean, wind-powered source of electricity

A vegetated, green roof and storm-water-collection system that significantly enhance water conservation and a geothermal well field to generate energy-efficient heating and cooling

A portion of our original garnet mine property has been developed into a solar farm that today generates nearly three million kilowatt hours of clean electricity per year, eliminating an estimated 1,275 tons of greenhouse gas emissions per year.
