Environmental Evolution

The United States has been positively impacted by the changing laws and the evolution of knowledge on environmental consequence of industrial operations.  The most notable impact was the December 11, 1980 Congressional Passage of Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation, and Liability Act (CERCLA), commonly known as Superfund. 

CERCLA act is a “no fault” statute that imposes environmental liability even when activities related to the environmental activity were in full compliance with the law and reasonable business judgment at the time.

For more than 30 years Aerojet Rocketdyne has embraced its “no fault” responsibilities.  Our environmental engineers have worked aggressively to develop remediation processes to effectively and safely clean soil and groundwater.   Many environmental processes and technologies that were pioneered at Aerojet Rocketdyne sites are now benefiting restoration activities around the world.

The company is committed to remediating contaminated soil and groundwater.
