Source: Frito Lay | December 18, 2019

GNA worked with the San Joaquin Valley Air Pollution Control District and Frito-Lay, a division of PepsiCo, to secure $15 million in grant funding to implement the “Frito-Lay Zero and Near-Zero Emission Project” in Modesto, California; a bold and transformative effort that will yield a world-renowned showcase for economically and environmentally sustainable manufacturing, warehousing, and distribution. This project aims to completely replace the use of all diesel-powered freight equipment within one of Frito-Lay’s largest food production, warehouse and regional distribution facilities. This will be accomplished using zero-emission (ZE) technology everywhere feasible, and near-zero emissions (NZE) technology and renewable fuels everywhere else. The project will integrate an incredible array of commercially available and pre-commercial ZE and NZE technologies in several applications. In addition to the fleet assets, an on-site renewable energy generation and energy storage systems will be installed to better serve the energy needs of the manufacturing facility and warehouses.
