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
Twin Rivers Technologies has implemented several conservation efforts at our Quincy, Massachusetts facility in order to reduce our environmental impact on the planet and reduce costs. One such efforts includes commissioning a combined heat and power (CHP) unit that generates onsite electricity, captures heat that would otherwise be waster and uses that heat for space heating and hot water needs. As a result of this project, TRT produced over 48% of our total electricity demand in-house during the first and second quarter in 2016.

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.
