Mar 05, 2018 (MarketLine via COMTEX) --

L'OrA(C)al USA has revealed plans to achieve carbon neutrality for all 21 of its manufacturing and distribution facilities in the US by 2019.

To achieve this goal, L'OrA(C)al USA will purchase renewable natural gas (RNG) from a new processing facility in Kentucky, which is expected to eliminate the carbon equivalent of 1.8 million gallons of gasoline consumed per year.The company currently has 17 renewable energy installations across the US, which includes on-site solar arrays in Arkansas, New Jersey and Kentucky, as well as wind turbines in Texas.L'OrA(C)al USA CEO and president FrA(C)dA(C)ric RozA(C) said: "Achieving carbon neutrality for all of our operations facilities furthers our commitment to being a sustainability leader in the US."We have seen that a dedication to sustainability fosters innovation, inspires creativity and builds a strong team spirit."In addition, the company's US operations team has identified another renewable energy production solution that uses landfill gas (LFG) from the Big Run Landfill in Ashland, Kentucky.The firm has signed a 15-year agreement to purchase nearly 40% of the RNG produced from Big Run Landfill, which will be directed into the interstate natural gas transmission system.Big Run Power Producers will start a new processing facility, which will process the LFG from the landfill and condition it for use as pipeline quality RNG.
