iotechnology pioneer Amgen has developed an ongoing Resource Conservation Program that has considerably reduced the use of natural resources at the its West Greenwich, RI facility. Continuing work by the Energy Reduction team and the Recycling team has already reduced water use by approximately 150,000 gallons a day and electricity consumption by 2.2 million kilowatt hours per year while increasing the recycling rate at the plant from 33% to 54%. They continue to look for ways to improve performance.
