Use of correct personal protective equipment (PPE)
Globally Harmonized System of Classification and Labeling of Chemicals. (GHS)
b) Ensuring that all equipment requiring Triennial Certificate of Operation is maintained in a manner that meet or exceed the DEP requirement for air pollution.
c) White Coffee Corp. in partnership with Filco Carting Corp. has established a comprehensive recycling program. Filco is a member of the U.S Green Building Council (USGBC) and the National Waste and & Recycling association (NWRA).
The recyclable material from white coffee was 64.12 tons (a) consist of cardboard, wood, mixed paper, metal and plastic.
d) Monitoring our waste water and effluent to reduce and minimize our impact on the environment is an integral part of our (EH&S) , the is achieve through the following:
Back- Flow prevention devices are installed on water mains to prevent contaminants from entering water supply
Any liquid products that could have an impact on the environment are disposed of by a company that is in compliance with EPA regulations and all applicable laws and permit.
e) Our energy conservation program consists of three elements, reduction in the use of electricity, water and natural gas.
Electricity: White coffee in collaboration with con Edison green team has completed two phases of replacing all light fixtures with energy efficient light fixtures. Replacements of all light fixtures will be completed by 2015, with an estimated reduction of 50% energy consumption for lighting (b).
Water: White coffee use an estimated 47200 cubic feet of water annually. The goal is a 20 %( c) reduction in the use of water
Gas: The estimated consumption of natural gas for 2014 is 86000 therms @ $0.70/ therm. The goal is a 15-20 % reduction in the use of natural gas (d).
f) All of white coffee trucks are eco-friendly, and are equipped with diesel exhaust fluid (DEF) technology (e).

f) Minimize toxic emission from our fleet
a) The 2013 tonnage of recyclable material from white coffee was 64.12 tons broken down as follows:
Mixed Paper 12.60
b) The project consists of replacing all Metal Halides with energy efficient florescent lights. Each 175 watts Metal Halide consume .175kwh of energy. Each 160 watt florescent light fixture consumes .160kwh of energy and replaces two Metal Halides.
c)The replacement of all existing toilets with power-flush units, reducing water consumption on newer units from 1.1 gal/flush to 1.1 gal/flush and on older model from 3gal/flush to 1.1 gal/flush ( 1 Gal=0.1336 cubic feet).
d) Replacement of existing burners on the R23’s with energy efficient burners, explore alternative heating solutions.
e) DEF fluid is injected into the exhausts system to convert nitrogen oxide to form ammonia and carbon dioxide which is then converted to water and nitrogen.
