    A Governor's Award for Environmental Excellence was presented today to representatives of the Frito-Lay North America plant in Frankfort.

    The facility that produces potato chips and other snack-food items was recognized by the Indiana Department of Environmental Management for five years of continuous improvement in its processes and practices from 2002 to 2007.

    Among its achievements, the company found a cleaner source of Indiana coal for steam generation. That change decreased sulfur dioxide emissions by 40 percent, natural gas usage by 18 percent, electricity usage by 9 percent and water usage by 13 percent.
