The recognition of STI's custom designed facility is built on:

  • Solar electric PV system that generates all of our electricity requirements
  • LED lighting with motion sensor control
  • Radiant heating
  • Closed loop purification of process water
  • Evaporation of all residual liquid
  • Zero discharge of any water to the local treatment center
  • Safe and efficient in-house steam production for heating needs
