Reduce Waste Project
Biodiesel Business

The Company to reduce dirt in wastewater from glycerin tower is implemented with the use of filter press so that filtered water can be reused in the production process. The project helps reduce treatment of wastewater from the production process by 30-45 tons per month, hence a decrease of wastewater treatment expense by Baht 35,000 per month.

Energy management

The company has Energy management guidelines by developing an appropriate energy management energy management system. The operating guidelines are setting goals and creating energy projects for the reduction of fuel consumption control to be in the appropriate amount for the operation.

2023 Performance/ Measurements

The company has an Energy Conservation Policy announcement, a summary of the annual report on Energy management by setting goals and creating energy projects for the implementation of fuel consumption control to be in the appropriate amount for the operation.

Reduce Energy Project
Biodiesel Business
  • The project to reduce LPG by reusing the remaining heat from hot RBD oil back to heat up directly on raw material. The ratio of LPG consumption during 2021, 2022 and 2023 are 0.64 Kg, 0.78 and 0.75 Kg of LPG / Kg of RBD oil respectively.

  • The project to reduce Coal by changing 16 ton tubes Boiler. The ratio of Coal consumption reduces from 146 Kg of Coal / Ton steam in 2021 and 147.79 Kg of Coal / Ton steam in 2022 to 140 Kg of Coal / Ton steam in 2023.
