TriQuint is increasing company awareness to foster sustainable practices within our work sites. Our people work to make manufactured products easy to recycle and dispose of at end of life. We’re providing education and support to our employees so they can better protect the Earth’s resources in their own homes and communities.
TriQuint focuses on continuous improvement and employs metrics that measure our environmental, health and safety impact, and business processes that set objectives within these areas.
Health & Safety
Health and safety is designed into the tools and procedures used to make our products. Training is provided to ensure that employees are compliant with operational protocols. Emergency Response Teams provide immediate response to any chemical spill or leak, an ill or injured employee or any other incident. Safety is built into our processes and operations.
Wastewater collection and recycling
Wastewater and materials recycling at TriQuint is part of our daily corporate practice to improve environmental sustainability. These practices have allowed our manufacturing sites to become small quantity generators of waste and recycle millions of gallons of water each year. New filtration systems were installed to clean the water efficiently enough to re-use in our process. Materials, such as electronics, cardboard, plastics, light bulbs and batteries are also incorporated into our facilities sustainable practices.
TriQuint has reduced its airborne emissions of VOCs (volatile organic compounds) and HAPs (hazardous air pollutants) significantly by using DFE (design for environment) process improvements and better treatment technologies. Our waste management practices have allowed TriQuint to reuse and recycle some materials, conserve natural resources through energy recovery, and treat or dispose of other manufacturing effluents in ways not previously possible. In addition, TriQuint people work to make manufactured products easy to recycle and dispose of at end of life.
