CLC Energy & Resource Integration
CLC builds the “Resource Integration System” with the 3-in-1 recycling model of products (fiber), energy, and water. Furthermore, the resource recycling loop is established via the cross-value chain and cross-industry operation of systems to maximize the benefit of 3Rs (Recycling, Reusing, and Renewing) and allows us to actively achieve the goal of zero-waste.
In addition to reducing the use of materials and improving efficiency with the manufacturing improvement and resource integrated application, we also constantly invest high-efficient pollution prevention equipment in decreasing the emission of pollutants. In the meantime, CLC promotes related improvement projects, puts resource into the R&D of green products, and creates the sustainable corporate value through the active operation of essential systems, such as the environmental management, greenhouse gas management, and energy management systems.
We plan to invest NT$ 1.54 billion of environmental protection funds in major projects in 2020, including equipping the biogas desulfurization and generation system at the Tayuan Mill and the effluent desalination and purification system at the ChuPei Mill.
3-in-1 Recycling Mode
Keep the usage rate for recovered paper at least 90%.
Increase alternative fuel ratio & waste to resources ratio independently to 15% and 85% by 2025.
Increase process water conservation rate at least 1% every year.
CLC 2019 Energy & Resource Integration Achievements and Goals
|Item||2019 achievements||2025 Goals|
|Recovered Paper||Recycled and reused 1.745 million tons of recovered paper, the recovered paper utilization rate reached 92.6%.||Keep the usage rate for recovered paper at least 90%.|
|Alternative Fuel||CLC makes boilers more efficient by increasing the alternative fuel ratio to 9.22%. We also make use of the regional advantages and introduce wind and solar power generation systems. In 2019, 2,857 Renewable Energy Certificates were acquired.||Alternative fuel ratio to 15%|
|Waste to Resources||Ratio of waste to resources reaches 80.9%. ChuPei Mill disposes the increasing and unmanageable waste food paper containers with the high-efficient laminated paper disposal system. The approved disposal amount of waste food paper containers is increased by 3 times to 1,400 tons per month.||waste to resources ratio to 85%|
|GHG Emissions||In 2019, through energy conservation projects, high-efficient energy-saving equipment, and optimal production processes, the Company had greenhouse gas emission of 1,425,817.967 tons CO2e in total, demonstrating a reduction of 13,109.809 tons (with a margin of 0.91%) compared to 2018.||Reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 3.5% within five years (from the base year of 2017)|
|Water Management||Reduce industrial paper unit water consumption by 5%||Increase process water conservation rate at least 1% every year.|
