FEC, A Cooperative - Pine Bluffs, WY

"Our agronomy business has worked extremely hard to create a safe and clean environment at Pine Bluffs," says Alan Curtis, vice president of agronomy at the location.

To this end, FEC has implemented numerous environmentally friendly options at its facility. Perhaps most important is the way the outlet has protected the flow of water around the facility.

"Our facility is built so that rain water is diverted away from where it might pick up undesirable products," says Curtis. "We have also poured cement aprons at each driveway to pull away any debris that might be present, both for inbound and outbound deliveries."

Curtis hopes to expand FEC's good stewardship practices to the company's other three facilities. "We need to keep raising the bar higher when it comes to environmental respect," he says.
