BNSF Railway Co (BNSF) has honoured 106 customers with its annual Product Stewardship Award for the safe transportation of hazardous materials by rail during 2019.
Companies receiving the award transported an established minimum of loaded tank cars of hazardous materials with zero non-accident releases during last year’s full transportation cycle. These customers also upheld the ethics of Product Stewardship under the American Chemistry Council’s Responsible Care® initiative.
“At BNSF nothing is more important than the safety of our employees and the communities we serve,” said Katie Farmer, executive vice president, Operations. “It is an honour to recognise our customers who exemplify the highest safety standards. With a strong partnership and a continued dedication to excellence in safety, we can both ensure that moving hazardous materials by rail will remain the safest land transportation option.”
Several of this year’s recipients have been honoured with a BNSF Stewardship Award in the past, including 14 companies that have won 10 or more years: Celanese Ltd., Dakota Spirit AgEnergy LLC, Eastman Chemical Co., Flint Hills Resources LP, Glacial Lakes Energy LLC, JR Simplot Co., Kemira Water Solutions Inc., Keyera Corp., Markwest Energy Partners LP, Martin Product Sales LLC, Nutrien Ltd., Reagent Chemical & Research Inc., The Chemours Company FC LLC, and The Dow Chemical Co.
