Today, due to the consumption of fossil fuels and the extreme accumulation of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere, global temperatures are rising. To reduce greenhouse gas emissions and increase the use of alternative and environmentally friendly energy. ThaiBev therefore has made technological changes in its production process to use renewable energy as the main source of energy. Awareness is also being raised among employees to make them understand the importance of the environment and society, inspiring them to better support the company’s green projects, such as the use of solar cells and the application of by-products from production processes as alternative energy sources.
ThaiBev Energy Audit Project
A company-wide project to assess the energy consumption of each production process and identify opportunities for energy efficiency. For example, beer and spirit product groups installed once-through boilers to increase energy efficiency and reduce the use of non-renewable fossil fuels. The beer product group cut its use of coal. The spirit product group was able to lower fuel oil consumption and decreased greenhouse gas emissions.
Rooftop Solar Cell Installation
This project consists of the installation of solar panels on the rooftops of 27 factories in Thailand, and one factory in Myanmar. The installation will be completed by 2025, with a total capacity of 20 megawatts (MWp). It is projected to reduce the amount of electricity purchased from the Provincial Electricity Authority and lower greenhouse gas emissions.
Biogas Plant Installation Project
This project biogas plants will be constructed. Vinasse, a by-product of the spirit distillery process, produces methane as a fuel for steam production, and can also be used to generate electricity. This can reduce average annual fuel oil consumption, and lower greenhouse gas emissions. The electricity produced from biogas can be transmitted back to the grid.
Commitment and Achievements
Reduction of Energy
