4Sight 2030目标

We’re pledging to reduce energy, 水, 碳, and waste across all of our production facilities, 在世界范围内.

Simplot’s 4Sight 2030目标

在Simplot, we are true stewards of the land, 空中和海上, driven to provide more plentiful, healthier food using fewer resources. Since we have all components of the agricultural value chain, we can tackle agricultural sustainability issues like nobody else, and that’s the approach we’re taking with our new sustainability goals.

Improving Operational Efficiencies-Today, and in the Future

J.R. Simplot公司 has specific and measurable sustainability goals. 的se operational goals are aimed at major reductions in energy, 水, 碳 and waste emissions by 2030. 有一个专门的计划使我们能够更准确地规划我们的未来并跟踪我们的进展, both globally and within every country in which we operate.

我们的目标:在过去的10年里,我们每吨产品的能耗降低了20%以上, and we intend to reduce energy use an additional 15% per ton of product by 2030.

Power Our Production Sites with Renewable 能源

Simplot的科学家和工程师正在使用厌氧消化器将废物转化为可用于减少废物和能源消耗的气体. Anaerobic digestion uses bacteria to consume waste product and create methane, a core component of natural gas and other fuels.

Recover Heat, Convert It to Renewable 能源

Simplot's Ulverstone site in Tasmania, 澳大利亚在2018年安装了一个500千瓦的热交换器,可以从制冷系统中回收热量,并用它来预热锅炉给水. 这个系统利用了以前会被排放到大气中的回收热量, but now saves us about 16,000 gigajoules of natural gas per year.

Similar principles are applied at our fertilizer manufacturing sites, as we reduce energy consumption through heat recovery. 在我们的设施中,化学反应产生的热量被捕获并作为能源使用.

Achieve and Sustain ENERGY STAR Excellence in Food Processing and 制造业

Simplot is an ENERGY STAR Industrial Partner. All Simplot food processing 植物s in the U.S. and 加拿大 have earned ENERGY STAR Certification, 该奖项每年颁发给在同行业同类设施中能效排名前25%的设施. 我们在加拿大Portage La Prairie的工厂已经连续10年达到能源标准, 2019年,该计划扩展到加拿大,正式获得“能源之星”认证.

In 2019, Simplot在加州的Helm工厂成为首批获得“能源之星”认证的氮肥工厂之一. This pioneering accomplishment was repeated in 2020, when the Helm 植物 was certified for a second consecutive year.

Address Historic Impacts with Advanced 水 Treatment

在20世纪80年代和90年代,烟雾峡谷矿山通过历史开采建造的覆盖层处置区(ODAs)渗透的降水将硒动员到地下水中. Hoopes泉和South Fork Sage Creek泉的地下水排放为下游河流提供了硒. Simplot建立了一个中试水处理厂(WTP),利用物理和生物技术处理受影响的泉水. This unique and innovative treatment process uses two technologies. ultra-filtration (UF)/reverse osmosis(RO) membranes concentrate the selenium from the 水; then a fluidized bed bioreactor (FBR) use specialized bacteria to reduce and precipitate selenium from 水. 的 selenium is then removed as a solid. Simplot’s 水 treatment 植物 began operating at a 1,700 to 2,000 gallon per minute rate in December 2017. 处理设施从一部分泉水中去除大约80-90%的硒.

Reclaim and Recycle 水 for a 50% Conservation Rate

Simplot’s state-of-the-art, LEED Gold Certified potato processing 植物 in Caldwell, 爱达荷州, saves energy and 水 while increasing production. Among its many innovations, 该工厂采用反渗透水过滤系统,每天可以过滤和回收多达100万加仑的水. This reduces the fresh 水 use by nearly 50%, saving about 30 million gallons of 水 per month, with much of the remaining, nutrient-rich 水 applied to surrounding crops.

我们的目标:通过降低生产设施的排放,将每吨产品的碳排放量减少20%.

Adopt Next-Generation Technology for Freezer Storage

Simplot最近投资了一个新的高湾冷冻机,以提高我们考德威尔的能源效率, 爱达荷州, 植物. 建筑设计最大限度地减少了能量损失,并允许使用更小的制冷系统,使用更少的能源,但仍然保持冷冻室在-5°F. 冷冻机还使Simplot能够在现场巩固各种存储位置, 帮助减少运输足迹和卡车运输的温室气体排放. 该项目还包括高效照明、热泵和反光屋顶涂层. In total, these improvements will save over 6.每年500万千瓦时的能源——足以为超过545个中等大小的家庭提供一年的电力. Two of our other potato production facilities employ similar new high-bay freezers.

Put Sustainable Fuels to Work for Potato Processing

Simplot has several projects in the works that use sustainable fuels. 例如, 十大正规博彩网站排名的摩西湖工厂拥有最先进的锅炉,可以燃烧三种不同的燃料:天然气, 氢气和沼气. Hydrogen burns clean and has zero 碳 emissions from combustion. Simplot在全国各地也有几家从厌氧沼气池中捕获沼气的公司. 沼气是一种可再生资源,由马铃薯废物厌氧消化产生,可以用作可持续燃料, allowing Simplot to eliminate waste and reduce energy consumption. By combusting biogas and hydrogen, 与只燃烧天然气相比,该基地减少了碳足迹和自然资源消耗.

培养堆肥

After a successful six-month composting pilot program, Simplot constructed a new advanced composting facility in Portage La Prairie, 加拿大. 该工厂设计用于堆肥各种加工废物,包括湿废物, cull potatoes and soil residue. 截至2020年, the 植物 has composted 51,384吨废物, and is able to compost materials that would otherwise have been sent to landfills. 它的闭环设计允许该设施通过在保温池中捕获任何富含营养的渗滤液径流来限制其进入环境,并减少温室气体排放. 径流被重新纳入堆肥过程,以保持堆肥窗口内的最佳湿度水平.

减少食物浪费

Simplot remains active in finding new solutions for reducing waste. 这包括从土豆中去除营养丰富的食物固体,并将其重新用于食品配料或牛饲料. We also repurpose another waste product, 活性有机固体残, to enrich livestock feed and as a soil amendment. 这些生物固体管理措施每年从堆填区转移超过15,000吨废物. 除了, Simplot为生鲜市场开发了一种新的土豆品种,有助于减少食物浪费. 的 先天®土豆 is less susceptible to bruising and spotting, 因此,农民可以将更多的作物带到市场和餐桌上,同时减少因损坏或不完美而造成的浪费.
