Sustainability ~ Planet
Twin Rivers Technologies Sustainability Program is designed to deliver continuous growth while reducing impact on the global community. We are constantly looking for ways to reduce our operations' impact on the environment. We do this through efforts in energy efficiency, water conservation, responsible sourcing and waste reduction.

Water is a critical resource used in our production processed. 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 has been one of our key strategies.
Energy Conservation & Efficiency
TRT's energy consumption is driven by two main factors: production of product and electric production. Electric production occurs by utilizing the onsite combined heat and power (CHP) plant that was installed in 2014 and came online in 2015. In 2014, production of product was slightly lower and less natural gas was used. Startup and optimization of the CHP from 2015 to 2016, also lead to downtime reducing CHP utilization. However in 2017, the CHP plant was almost fully operational, producing its highest amount of electricity. This did required more fuel than in the previous year but secured TRT's energy supply helping to support sustained operations and energy independence.
Twin Rivers is classified as a Small Quantity Generator (SQG). As such, we work hard to reduce and eliminate the waste that is an inherent component of our operations. The reuse of certain by-products of our process has been an important step in reducing our overall waster production.
