U.S. Stone earned the NSC 373 Certification as a Sustainable Stone Silver Fabricator in 2022.
The diversity and beauty of Kansas Limestone is echoed by the land it comes from. U.S. Stone Industries is committed to sustainable operations and innovation from quarry through fabrication and delivery.
With a continued effort to sustainability, U.S. Stone strives to achieve Certification in quarry sustainability in 2022.
U.S. Stone Industries has fully implemented dry sawing and extraction for all quarry sites. This initiative has maximized efficiency as it relates to fuel, reduced logistical footprints and has effectively minimized waste from the start of extraction to the delivery of raw Kansas Limestone blocks. U.S. Stone Industries is also leading the region in regards to land reclamation, shaping and seeding with collaboration between quarry teams and colleagues at the state of Kansas. Continued commitment and execution are key in exercising the elements of the NSC 373 quarry sustainability standards to achieve certification.
U.S. Stone achieved certification for sustainable stone fabrication operations in 2022. This certification from the Natural Stone Council works to improve the industry’s baseline for the environmental performance of natural stone.
At U.S. Stone Industries we sustainably quarry and fabricate natural stone building products designed and installed by partners across North America.
In addition to finished natural stone products, U.S. Stone Industries stockpiles fine, dried lime (a by-product of water recycling during fabrication) for agricultural use and crushes unused material for aggregate applied regionally to rural roads. These materials could be treated as meaningless waste from the fabrication process, but U.S. Stone Industries has devised innovative methods to turn trash into treasure, while simultaneously minimizing carbon footprint.
Used by builders, landscapers, and masons.
Applied as an aggregate to regional rural roads.
Used in agricultural applications.
U.S. Stone recycled nearly 10000% of its water in 2021, with hopes of increasing that number in future years. This recycling percentage is accomplished through redundant usage of the same water in all production facilities.
