Heineken – Indonesia.

Heineken was able to reduce its energy cost and achieve an estimated GHG reduction of 48,000 tCO2e.

Need

Driven by its sustainable development goals, Heineken was looking to implement renewable energy solutions for their production plant, but such solutions were scarcely available in the south-east Asian public sector.

Challenges

Renewable Energy solutions pertaining to Heineken's requirement were hardly available in the South-East Asian public sector.

Solution

  • In June 2018, BECIS commissioned a 7 tph capacity biomass heat solution covering 100% of the steam demanded by one of Heineken's plants in Indonesia. An agreement, for a span of 15 years, was signed to purchase steam along with financing, construction, sustainable biomass feed-stock supply, operations & maintenance of the plant.
  • The biomass boiler has replaced the conventional natural gas-fired boiler system where the renewable heat energy is generated by burning 100% of agricultural waste (rice husk).
  • The ash produced from the operation of the biomass facility is being used again as raw material for organic fertilizer to support agriculture in the surrounding community; thus, laying the initial foundation of a circular green economy.
  • The operation is Roundtable on Sustainable Biomaterials (RSB) certified.
