All of the biotic and abiotic factors that act on an organism, population, or ecological community and influence its survival and development. Biotic factors include the organisms themselves, their food, and their interactions. Abiotic factors include such items as sunlight, soil, air, water, climate, and pollution. Organisms respond to changes in their environment by evolutionary adaptations in form and behavior.


API is a committed, eco-conscious company, that will remain cognizant in our efforts to continuously improve our operations, in an environmentally friendly way. We have a great responsibility to our planet Earth, our local community and to ourselves.

Our goal is to improve the environment by working with community leaders to create a safe and clean place where we work and live.

Going GREEN is a challenging process in the manufacturing environment. API reinforces its goals by promoting recycling and/or reuse of everyday materials within our processes. We are dedicated to fostering a partnership with local IEPA to educate our staff on new ways to remain at and above compliance with relevant environmental laws and regulations.

Our promise is that API is committed and will remain a company conscious in an effort to continuously improve our facility in an environmentally friendly way, that will enhance sustainability.
