AVX Corp. recently received the Corporate Environmental Achievement Award from the American Ceramic Society (ACerS). An awards banquet was held to formally recognize AVX during the Society's annual meeting in Indianapolis, Ind. "As a worldwide technology leader, we feel an obligation to set the standard in environmental awareness and respect," said Craig Hunter, strategic marketing manager. AVX has implemented Environmental, Health & Safety (EH&S) policies and procedures to conform to ISO 14001 standards and regulatory requirements. The project that attracted ACerS' attention dealt with controlling volatile organic compound (VOC) emissions from a new multilayer ceramic capacitor manufacturing facility.
