Evanger’s Dog and Cat Food Company is planning to open a new facility in the Chicago suburb of Markham, Illinois, USA.
With the goal of achieving LEED certification, the petfood facility incorporates a number of sustainable practices. The facility features skylights as the dominant source of light, LED lights controlled by motion sensors, motors utilizing variable frequency drives to use less electricity, and steam created by natural gas powered boiler to heat the plant and cook food.
“We produce very little waste- the equivalent of a standard family 60-gallon can each day,” said president of Evanger’s, Holly Sher. “Our environment is the lifeblood of our products, so it has always made sense to take every measure possible to help preserve the integrity of our earth, and the ingredients it provides us.”
