We partnered with Green Places. PDQ is now committed to calculating our carbon footprint, investing in the environment, and working towards a better quality tomorrow for all.
The Salto Pilão project consists of the construction of a hydropower plant which has a power generation capacity of 191.8 megawatts, meaning the plant can supply power for around 190,000 homes. This hydropower plant calls the Southern region of Brazil home, located between the cities of Lontras, Ibirama and Apiúna, in the state of Santa Catarina. The hydropower plant uses turbines to generate renewable energy for the National Interconnected Grid, creating a more resilient electrical grid, expanding energy sources for Brazil’s future.
Hudson Technologies is working to reduce the overall environmental impact refrigerants have on our world by reclaiming and reusing hydrofluorocarbons (HFCs) - the most commonly used refrigerant and a powerful greenhouse gas when released into the atmosphere. Hudson processes used refrigerants to remove oil and water so that they meet specifications for new refrigerant gas, and once restored, they are used in the maintenance of existing and newly manufactured products. By reclaiming, recertifying, and reusing refrigerants - 400,000 lbs to date - this project is reducing greenhouse gas emissions and waste, and promoting a more sustainable means of HFC use and management.
This project includes 33 wind turbines that, all together, produce approximately 124,300MWh per year. The renewable energy is sold to the North China Power Grid, strengthening their electrical grid resilience and expanding their energy sources for generations to come.
We're going to be working to work on our emissions, and starting a journey to lessen our impact on the planetSubscribe
