For Nestlé, manufacturing includes all the processes we need to turn raw materials into safe, nutritious products for our consumers.
In 2016, we have initiated about 50 projects in our manufacturing units with an estimated annualised savings of 64,756 Gigajoule which shall be fully realised by the coming year. These projects are aimed at reducing energy consumption and GHG emissions, and improving energy efficiency. Our manufacturing units at Tahliwal (Himachal Pradesh), Nanjangud (Karnataka) and Bicholim (Goa) have optimised steam consumption systems, while our Ponda (Goa) unit reduces energy consumption through installed heat pumps. We have also installed systems to recover heat from ammonia compressors and improve the condensate recovery process.
In November 2015, we installed a 300KW solar power plant at our Samalkha unit to increase renewable energy share in our energy consumption mix. This plant is expected to annually reduce CO2 emission by 324 tonnes as well as energy consumption by 400MWh.
