At Masan Consumer Holdings, we have made great efforts in lowering our energy requirements, reducing our energy usage from 15% to 40% depending on product lines as compared to 2013. Approximately 30% of our energy for production is generated from renewable sources. In 2018, Masan Consumer Holdings consumed 255 thousand tons of steam and 5,300 kilowatt of electricity.
In 2018, Masan Consumer Holdings upgraded the heat exchange and cooling systems at our production lines for seasonings as well as the compressed air machines at the plastic bottling lines. As a result, we reduced our gas and electricity consumption. The company also installed a new soy sauce hydrolysis system at our Binh Duong facility that is equipped with the latest high-tech pollution control system in Southeast Asia. At Masan Nutri-Science, we improved our boiler and grinder’s efficiency, and switched to using LED lamps to save energy. Masan’s high-tech pig farm in Nghe An is considered to be Vietnam’s most environmentally advanced, able to produce biogas from its operations and generate enough electricity to be self-sufficient.
