Our EcoMission

HA International supports sustainability by minimizing the foundry environmental impact of our products while continually improving their performance and value.


Minimizing our impact on the environment is part of HAI's EcoMission. Our goal is to minimize foundry environmental impact throughout our product's life cycles, with an ongoing commitment to continuous improvement. View our video.

To be recognized as an EcoMission classification, each of our products must meet at least three out of five environmental criteria:

  • Utilizes water or renewable components
  • Utilizes recycled components
  • Low Volatile Organic Compound (VOC)
  • Low Hazardous Air Pollutant (HAP)
  • Low Odor


Product performance is paramount to our EcoMission. Our EcoMission products must not only have improved environmental attributes, but also must yield high quality castings at an overall cost that allows our customers to compete and succeed in the global marketplace. All products that are part of HAI's Environmental Solution will be marked with our EcoMission leaf.

HA International's Amine Reclamation Program (HARP) is HAI's newest EcoMission program designed as an ecologically responsible option for the disposal of scrubber solution created in Phenolic Urethane Cold Box (PUCB) processing.

Our HARP program delivers sustainability through recovering amines as well as providing performance and value to our customers.
