SC Johnson Cuts GHG Emissions With Cogeneration
SC Johnson says that powering the company’s largest global manufacturing plant with cogeneration turbines that run on natural gas and waste methane from a public landfill have prevented GHG emissions equivalent to that produced by a car driving 7,630 times around the Earth.
The twin cogeneration turbines produce 6.4 megawatts of electrical power and meet the average daily base-load electrical demand for the company’s largest manufacturing plant – called Waxdale – which is located in Racine, Wis. The twin turbines reduce SC Johnson’s annual GHG emissions by 52,000 tons per year.
“Consumers who purchase well-known products like Windex glass cleaner and Scrubbing Bubbles bathroom cleaner can feel good knowing that these and other SC Johnson products are made with green energy,” according to SC Johnson.
