Firestone Natural Rubber Company built a state-of-the-art, multi-million dollar water treatment facility and constructed wetlands, a process developed in collaboration with the Liberian Environmental Protection Agency and with Dr. Robert Knight, the foremost environmental wetlands expert in the world. That system includes an equalization tank and clarifying tanks that remove solids from process water and treat it. The process water is then sent to constructed wetlands, which further filters it.
Firestone Natural Rubber Company works continuously to improve the treatment of the water used on the rubber farm. We are preparing construction of a third generation treatment system that, as designed, will further improve waste water quality.
