DANONE – Indonesia.

Helping Danone achieve its “ONE PLANET ONE HEALTH” vision of 50% reduced carbon emission by 2030.

Need

To have a sustainable process and reduced emissions in their manufacturing facilities, DANONE decided to replace fossil fuel-based generation and switch to green energy.

Challenges

One of the key challenges for the project will be implementing distributed energy solutions in a fully functional facility.

Solution

In June 2020 DANONE Group for its Indonesian entity PT Sarihusada Generasi Mahardhika, partnered with BECIS to implement a biomass based steam generation project. A biomass-based boiler using 100% sustainably secured agricultural waste will be replacing their existing fossil fuel fired thermal system. BECIS will invest, design, construct, operate and maintain the plant. The ash produced from the operation of the biomass facility will be raw material for organic fertilizer to support agriculture in the surrounding community. This ash will also be used to generate building construction material and other commercial applications which will create local employment in the nearby region. This biomass plant will also be certified by The Roundtable on Sustainable Biomaterials (RSB).

The biomass steam plant will also have its own onsite solar solution which will be installed by BECIS. It is estimated that this solution will reduce 5,800 tCO2e every year.
