The State of New Jersey has announced that DSM, with its North American headquarters in Parsippany, NJ, is a winner of the 2014 Governor’s Environmental Excellence Award in the Healthy & Sustainable Business category. DSM and others were honoured for their achievements in improving and protecting the environment in New Jersey and promoting sustainable business practices. DSM was recognised for its ongoing activities to make its DSM Nutritional Product’s production plant in Warren County, NJ one of the most environmentally friendly facilities in the state and an example of sustainable business practices.

Efforts at the DSM plant in Belvidere and White Township, New Jersey include: the installation of a state of the art 10 MW cogeneration plant which reduce yearly plant emissions of NOx and CO by 48 tons and 11 tons respectively, construction of a 6 MW solar field to supply clean and renewable energy to the site, the 100% composting  of over 6,000 annual tons of wastewater treatment biosolids, as well as continuing work to reduce site water consumption by exploring the feasibility to use 500,000 gallons a day of treated effluent to meet the site’s cooling tower needs.  Additionally, the DSM site reached a 92% recycling/reuse rate with its biosolids and over 900 tons of other recyclables, and has partnered with the US Department of Energy in its Save Energy Now Leader initiative to reduce energy use. DSM and its Warren County facility also run a number of other programs and initiatives designed to reduce the site’s environmental impact, reduce the carbon footprint of products produced there, and to encourage employees to embrace environmental sustainability at work, home and in the community.

The Governor’s Environmental Excellence Award (GEEA) is the State of New Jersey’s premier environmental awards program recognising outstanding environmental performance, programs and projects in the state. These awards honour and recognise individuals, businesses, educators, institutions, communities, youth and others who have made significant contributions to environmental protection in New Jersey.

“DSM is honored to receive the Governor’s Environmental Excellence Award,” said Hugh Welsh, President of DSM North America. “We appreciate Governor Christie’s recognition of our dedication, and the dedication of our employees, to reducing our overall carbon footprint, our embrace of renewable energy and our genuine commitment to improving our sustainability as a company. We will continue with our goal of being a model corporate citizen in New Jersey and in every community where we have the privilege to operate.”
