The three foundational pillars that Twin Rivers Technologies' Sustainability program is built on are

  • People
  • Planet
  • Performance

We are constantly looking for ways to reduce our operations' impacts on the environment.  We do this through efforts in energy efficiency, water conservation, responsible sourcing and waste reduction.  Monitoring our environmental performance over time allows us to better understand our impacts on the planet and identify opportunities to improve in the future.

Energy

Since the addition of natural gas as a fuel option in 2012, TRT's primary source of fuel is comprised of natural gas, but is supplemented by fuel oil when the natural gas supply chain is under stress.  TRT works with our supplier to utilize fuel oil when demand for local communities is high. 

In 2017, TRT went fully online with our onsite combined heat and power (CHP) plant.  This allowed us to produce electricity in house.

Water

Water is a critical resource used in our production process.  We continuously explore ways to optimize our production systems to minimize our total water consumption and discharge.  Conservation efforts that minimize the amount of water we consume per ton of product produced has been one of our key strategies.

Twin Rivers Technologies' goal is to be the sustainability leader within the oleochemical industry.  Meeting today's, and more importantly, the future needs of our customers and stakeholders is of paramount importance.  Looking forward, we will continue to undertake initiatives to improve our sustainability.  For more information about TRT's water conservation efforts as well as the link to download our full 2017 Sustainability Report, please click here.
