LANSING, Mich. -- Today, Lt. Governor Garlin Gilchrist visited Quad City Innovations alongside Congresswoman Haley Stevens to support and expand sustainable technology like the work done at Quad City Innovations.
"All Michiganders deserve to live in a healthy environment with clean air, water, and soil, which we can improve through sustainable technology," said Lt. Governor Gilchrist. "When we make these critical investments and utilize every aspect of emerging technologies, we're better able to protect public health, our economy, and our environment. The actions we take today will create a better world for our children and future generations of Michiganders."
Since day one of taking office, Governor Whitmer has been focused on protecting our environment. In 2019, Governor Whitmer signed Executive Directive 2019-16 that ensures that each State facility is improving and expanding its procedures for recycling and educating and engaging state employees on recycling best practices.
Quad City Innovations is based in the Detroit metropolitan area that focuses on environmentally-friendly sustainable technology such as recycling, converting plastic waste to energy, and air filtration. Expanding investment in sustainable technology will make Michigan an industry leader and create jobs.
