ATL is not a "suddenly-trendy" company. The fact is, we have been attuned to health, safety, conservation and environmental issues for 40 years.
First came the safety and good health of ATL's customers whom we've long protected by preventing countless fires, explosions, burns and fatalities through ATL's revolutionary safety fuel cell bladder tanks.
At the same time, ATL has refined its own research and manufacturing processes to drastically reduce reliance upon chemicals and solvents, otherwise common to the rubber and plastics industry. Our company has successfully diminished waste and scrap too, by re-positioning and re-cycling spent raw materials, such as foam, fabrics and elastomers.
ATL is also proud of its safe and healthy workplace, which is routinely inspected and approved by both Federal and State OSHA offices. Our workspaces are outfitted with high efficiency lighting, central skylights, localized heating, R40 insulation, fresh air circulation and full fire suppression systems. Employees enjoy safe off-street parking in a suburban setting, yet close to major arteries for minimizing travel-time and fuel consumption. Even the ATL grounds are heavily planted with oxygen-emitting trees, shrubs, and "modest but attractive" flower beds!
ATL's offices and technical labs have adopted programs to recycle newsprint, glass, metal, plastics and even outdated documents, which are reused as scrap-paper!
Most interesting is ATL's gradual, but brave, technological metamorphosis from petroleum-based polymers to those derived from renewable organics and even stone! These eco-friendly raw materials include elastomers, high-tensile fibers, sealants and thermal reflectives.
Most of ATL's avant-garde synthetics allow the company to produce even stronger and safer crash-resistant fuel cell tanks for its many customers. An environmental corollary to this material transition is ATL's low-diffusion fuel bladders which markedly reduce gasoline and diesel vapor emissions. These new flexible fuel vessels readily accept all of the myriad bio-fuels coming to market. Ethanol fuels, bio-diesel, methanol, bio-jet and a host of other combustibles can all be interchanged safely in one ATL "flex-fuel" bladder tank. And, although our roofs are not yet hosts to solar arrays and wind turbines, ATL has devised effective in-house programs for reducing gas and electric requirements, conserving water, curtailing solid waste and preserving photosynthesizing vegetation.
Summarily, ATL has long been a silent pioneer in both basic and advanced practices to help safeguard our vulnerable planet and its inhabitants. At ATL we don't just speak "lean and green"; we live by it!
