Chipping away to become Eco-Friendly

Frito-Lay will take a major Eco-Friendly step by taking its Arizona factory off the grid.

A design that will reduce electricity and water consumption by 90%, and greenhouse gas reduction by 75%!

How? - Potato peelings will be used to fertilize farmland. Filters will recycle wastewater and use it to power the factory. Other wastewater will be burned to produce methane to power boilers. In addition, more efficient ovens will be used, along with vacuum hoses to absorb moisture from the taters. Less moisture means less energy is required to cook the chips. Heat from heat stacks will be recaptured and reused. Skylights will light the entire factory.

Renewable energy will power much of the plant. 50 acres of solar concentrators are to be built behind the plant for energy, and a biomass generator will burn agricultural waste to produce even more energy.

Who says you can't get frying "hot" with green energy!
