reduction in waste disposal in 2016 vs 2015
Our Malaysian operations conducts an annual assessment of the local water supply condition to ensure sufficient water resources at our production site. We also practice responsible water stewardship for water extraction and discharge of treated waste at an onsite waste water treatment plant in accordance with the requirements of local authorities.
In 2016, we continued to improve water efficiency by improving production forecasts, operations efficiency and reducing idle water consumption. We used recycled water from production for cleaning of equipment and reduced water consumption by improving production efficiency.
As part of our continuous improvement efforts to reduce the waste disposal, we made an investment for yeast press equipment to improve the performance of the waste water treatment plant by splitting water and sludge at a higher efficiency level. Our water efficiency consumption in 2016 reduced to 3.70hl/ hl from 3.72hl/hl in 2015.
