Manufacturing Cosmos Brewery (Thailand) Company Limited
“At present, the beer group plans to reduce energy consumption along with greenhouse gas emissions to comply with ThaiBev’s targets for 2025. The use of renewable energy will increase. Budgets have been allocated for replacing fossil-fuel based electricity with solar energy. We currently use biogas from the wastewater treatment system to replace the use of fossil fuels, through the installation of a once-through boiler. The group plans for future energy use to be sustainable. Energy consumption will decrease by modifying equipment for higher efficiency and lower power requirements. Efforts are underway to increase production efficiency by capturing carbon dioxide from fermentation to be reused in the production process (CO2 Recovery Plant). This can help lower electricity consumption, and also allow for the reuse of carbon dioxide in the production process that otherwise would be released during fermentation. The most important plan is to train employees and encourage them to participate in energy efficiency initiatives for maximum impact.
