CLC Energy & Resource Integration
CLC builds the “Energy & 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 to maximize the benefit of 3Rs (Reduce, Reuse, Recycle) and allows us to actively achieve the goal of zero-waste.
3-in-1 Recycling Mode
Goals of 2030: Recovered paper utilization rate 97% (Industrial paper)
Goals of 2030: Alternative fuel ratio 18%
Waste-to-resource ratio 92%
Goals of 2030: Unit product water consumption -1% yearly (Paper Division)
CLC 2020 Energy & Resource Integration Achievements and Goals
|Item||2020 achievements||Goals of 2030|
|Recovered Paper||1. Recycled and reused 1.72 million tons of recovered paper, the recovered paper utilization rate reached 92.% (higher than average rate 75% in Taiwan). Recovered paper utilization rate (Industrial Paper) is 97%.
2. Chupei Mill use 15.5 k MT of food paper container / liminated paper, and reduced carbon emissions by 89 k MT.
|Recovered Paper Utilization Rate *Industrial Paper > 97%|
|Alternative Fuel||CLC makes boilers more efficient by increasing the alternative fuel ratio to 7.23%, replacing 40,693 MT coal. We also make use of the regional advantages and introduce wind and solar power generation systems. Acquired 9,309 RECs in accumulation (2017-2020).||Alternative fuel ratio to 18%|
|Waste to Resources||Amount of waste-to-resource reached 283,880 MT at 85.1%, up by 4.2% YoY. Implement waste-to-resource revitalization and regeneration and cultivate channels; promoted right uses for proper materials to reduce residual waste from 10–13% to below 6%.||Waste to resources ratio to 92%|
|GHG Emissions||Identify climate opportunities and risks with the TCFD framework, implement energy conservation and carbon reduction projects and applicate for GHG offset to EPA of Tayuan Mill. Total GHG emission reduced by 0.57% YoY.||GHG Emission (Base Year: 2017) -5%|
|Water Management||Paper Division reduced unit product water consumption by -1.6%. Industrai Paper Division reduced unit product water consumption by -2.56%. Implement water management project: Purchased fiber recovery machine, secondary IC anaerobic treatment equipment etc.||Unit Product Water Consumption *Paper Division (Base Year: 2019) -10% (Total)|
