FRITO-LAY'S KILLINGLY "OFF THE GRID"
PepsiCo’s Frito-Lay Killingly, Conn., manufacturing facility recently celebrated the inauguration of its Co-Generation system, which will generate almost 100 percent of the site’s electrical requirements. To maximize the system, the facility will utilize the waste heat generated to produce steam to help with the manufacturing of snack products made there. The implementation of this new system is another step to help the site reduce its environmental footprint and help alleviate the significant load already on the heavily congested northeast power grid.
Frito-Lay's long-standing commitment to sustainability is to continuously develop and implement innovative programs that will minimize our environmental impact and reduce our use of precious resources. Over the years, the company has voluntarily developed and implemented programs that have significantly reduced our use of water, fuels and electricity.
