The National Asphalt Pavement Association's Diamond Achievement Commendation for Excellence in Hot Mix Asphalt Plant/Site Operations is an effort to improve the public perception of the hot mix asphalt industry. Although the program was just announced in April 1999, 83 plants/sites had achieved the commendation by year's end. It is becoming known that companies showing the Diamond logo have proved their involvement in their communities, their environmental stewardship, and their commitment to clean operations. The rigorous self-assessment program covers six aspects of plant/site operations: appearance, permitting and regulatory compliance, environmental practices, operations, safety, and community relations.
