IN A WORLD OF LIMITED NATURAL RESOURCES, WE MUST STRIVE TO MAXIMIZE THEIR USE

Repurposing our natural resources into sustainable ingredients is what we do, thereby achieving substantial carbon footprint reduction in the supply chain. We serve as stewards for our environment and constantly strive for further improvement by reducing our energy use and increasing renewable energy production.

Hands-on commitment

Our contribution to clean air and water is highlighted in three cases that show how we commit to our promise:

THE NEXT GENERATION OF RENEWABLE FUEL... TODAY

How we use domestic feedstock to create US jobs and produce a sustainable fuel to meet energy needs

TURNING WASTEWATER INTO A VALUABLE RESOURCE

How we create cleaner effluent, deliver on the environmental aspect, and found a way to reduce costs of wastewater treatment  

A NATURAL SOLUTION SOLVES THREE ENVIRONMENTAL NEEDS

How we enable the transition from a manure excess problem to the sustainable production of a valuable organic phosphate-rich fertilizer.

“We use state-of-the-art technologies to minimize our use of energy and water. In fact, some of our plants don’t just consume energy – they also produce it, burning processed fats and other by-products to power processes or provide energy to our operations and to local communities. Our wastewater is treated by systems that can generate biogas as fuel, provide recycled water for use in plant operations, support the replenishment of water to green zones in safe, eco-friendly habitats, or be returned as clean water to the environment through crop irrigation and discharges to surface water.”
