Batory Foods Presented With Environmental Stewardship Award

June 22, 2010
Batory Foods has been awarded the Environmental Stewardship Award from Orion Energy Systems.

The company has replaced 188 high-intensity discharge light fixtures with energy saving fluorescent fixtures.  By replacing the fixtures Batory Foods anticipates cutting its light-related electricity consumption by 62 percent.  Reducing electricity consumption means the harmful greenhouse gases associated with its creation will be reduced into the atmosphere at large.

Additional benefits from the conversion will decrease carbon dioxide emissions and reduce 18 tons of sulfur dioxide and 7 tons of nitrogen oxides, according to the Environmental Protection Agency.  The greenhouse gas emission reductions are equivalent to saving a 62-acre forest or removing 55 cars from the road.

Batory Foods has also installed motion sensors that insure that lights go on only as needed.
