4Sight 2030 Goals

我们承诺减少能源消耗, water, carbon, 以及我们所有生产设施的废物, worldwide.

Simplot的4Sight 2030目标

At Simplot, 我们是这片土地真正的管家, air and sea, 驱动提供更充足, 用更少的资源吃更健康的食物. 因为我们拥有农业价值链的所有组成部分, 我们可以解决农业可持续发展问题,没有人能做到这一点, 这就是我们为实现新的可持续发展目标所采取的方法.

提高运营效率——现在和未来

The J.R. Simplot公司有具体和可衡量的可持续发展目标. 这些业务目标旨在大幅减少能源, water, 到2030年碳和废物排放. Having a dedicated plan enables us to more accurately map our future and track our progress, 无论是在全球范围内还是在我们开展业务的每个国家.

Our goal: We reduced energy use over 20% per ton of product during the past 10 years, 我们打算到2030年每吨产品再减少15%的能源消耗.

用可再生能源为我们的生产基地供电

Simplot scientists and engineers are using anaerobic digesters to convert waste into gas that can be used to reduce our waste and energy consumption. 厌氧消化利用细菌消耗废物并产生甲烷, 天然气和其他燃料的核心成分.

回收热量,将其转化为可再生能源

Simplot在塔斯马尼亚的Ulverstone站点, Australia installed a 500-kW heat exchanger in 2018 that recovers heat from the refrigeration system and uses it to pre-heat boiler feedwater. This system makes use of recovered heat that previously would have been vented to the atmosphere, 但现在为我们节省了大约16,每年生产10亿焦耳的天然气.

我们的化肥生产基地也采用了类似的原则, 因为我们通过热回收减少了能源消耗. The heat generated by chemical reactions at our facilities is captured and used as an energy source.

在食品加工和制造领域达到并保持“能源之星”卓越水平

Simplot是能源之星工业合作伙伴. 美国所有的简易食品加工厂.S. 和加拿大都获得了能源之星认证, an annual award given to facilities that perform in the top 25% for energy efficiency among similar facilities in its industry. Our Portage La Prairie facility in Canada has met the energy criteria for 10 consecutive years, officially earning ENERGY STAR recognition in 2019 when the program extended into Canada.

In 2019, Simplot’s Helm plant in California became one of the first nitrous fertilizer plants to receive ENERGY STAR certification. 这一开拓性成就在2020年得以延续, 当Helm工厂连续第二年获得认证时.

用先进的水处理解决历史影响

Precipitation infiltrating through overburden disposal areas (ODAs) constructed by historical mining in the 1980’s and 90’s at the Smoky Canyon Mine has mobilized selenium into the groundwater. Groundwater discharge at Hoopes Spring and South Fork Sage Creek Springs contribute selenium to downgradient streams. Simplot constructed a pilot water treatment plant (WTP) utilizing both physical and biological technologies to treat the impacted spring water. 这种独特而创新的处理过程使用了两种技术. ultra-filtration (UF)/reverse osmosis(RO) membranes concentrate the selenium from the water; then a fluidized bed bioreactor (FBR) use specialized bacteria to reduce and precipitate selenium from water. 然后将硒作为固体除去. Simplot的水处理厂开始以1,700 to 2,2017年12月,每分钟1000加仑. The treatment facility removes approximately 80-90% of the selenium from a portion of the spring water.

回收和循环利用水,达到50%的节约率

Simplot最先进的, 考德威尔的LEED黄金认证马铃薯加工厂, Idaho, 节约能源和水,同时提高产量. 在众多创新中, the plant utilizes a reverse osmosis water filtration system that can filter and recycle up to 1 million gallons per day. 这减少了近50%的淡水使用量, 每月节约约3000万加仑的水, 剩下的大部分, 施于周围作物的富含营养的水.

采用新一代冷冻储存技术

Simplot recently invested in a new high-bay freezer for improved energy efficiency at our Caldwell, Idaho, plant. The building design minimizes energy loss and allows for a smaller refrigeration system that uses less energy but still maintains the freezer at -5°F. The freezer also enabled Simplot to consolidate a variety of storage locations on site, helping reduce our transportation footprint and greenhouse gas emissions from trucking. The project also included efficient lighting, heat pumps and reflective roof coating. 总的来说,这些改进将节省超过6.5 million kilowatt-hours of energy per year – enough to power more than 545 average-sized homes for one year. 我们的其他两个马铃薯生产设施采用了类似的新型高架冷冻机.

将可持续燃料用于马铃薯加工

Simplot有几个使用可持续燃料的项目正在进行中. For example, Simplot’s Moses Lake Plant features a state-of-the-art boiler designed to burn three different fuels: natural gas, hydrogen and biogas. 氢燃烧干净,燃烧时零碳排放. Simplot also has several operations across the country that capture biogas from anaerobic digesters. Biogas is a renewable resource generated onsite from the anaerobic digestion of potato waste that can be used as a sustainable fuel, 使Simplot能够消除浪费并降低能耗. 通过燃烧沼气和氢气, the site reduces its carbon footprint and natural resource consumption compared to burning only natural gas.

Waste

我们的目标是:我们在世界各地的食品加工厂零废弃物填埋.

Cultivate Composting

经过六个月成功的堆肥试点项目, Simplot在Portage La Prairie建造了一个新的先进堆肥设施, Canada. The plant was designed to compost a variety of processing waste including wet waste, 剔除土豆和土壤残渣. As of 2020, 这家工厂已经堆肥了,384 tons of waste, 并且能够将原本要送往垃圾填埋场的材料进行堆肥. Its closed-loop design allows the facility to limit any nutrient-rich leachate runoff into the environment by capturing it in holding cells and reduces greenhouse gas emissions. The runoff is re-incorporated into the composting process to maintain optimal moisture levels within the compost windrows.

Reduce Food Waste

Simplot一直积极寻找减少浪费的新解决方案. This includes removing nutrient rich food solids from potatoes and repurposing it for food ingredients or cattle feed. 我们还重新利用了另一种废物, activated biosolids, 丰富牲畜饲料和作为土壤改良剂. These biosolids management practices divert over 15,000 tons of waste from landfills each year. In addition, Simplot developed a new variety of potato for the fresh market that helps reduce food waste. The Innate® potato 更不容易出现瘀伤和斑点, so farmers can bring more of their crop to market and table with less waste due to damage or imperfections.
