Mondelez installs biomass boiler
Food manufacturer Mondelez Philippines, formerly known as Kraft Foods Philippines, has completed installation of a biomass boiler which will generate renewable energy for its manufacturing plant in Parañaque City.
The new technology will handle rice husks and coconut shells when it comes online later this month, helping Mondelez to slash its greenhouse gas emissions by approximately 648 tonnes per year. It will produce enough steam to power the factory's production process during ingredients preparation and machine cleaning.
The company entered into a partnership with boiler manufacturer Enertech Systems Industries to carry out the project through a build-operate-transfer scheme. Enertech's role includes capital expenditure, operation, maintenance, and feedstock sourcing. The boiler took seven months to build.
The total cost of the project was not disclosed.
