Biorefining sustainably | Commitment #1

Optimize our energy consumption by installing energy-efficient solutions and using relevant renewable energies.

Roquette reduces its energy consumption

In order to reduce its greenhouse gas emissions and limit its environmental impact on the planet, the Group has implemented various effective measures in its sites. We are now optimizing our energy consumption by using more efficient solutions and respectful of the environment. This year, we have installed a new evaporator of high energy efficiency in Lestrem (France) that allows us to generate a gain of about 24 GWh/year. In Wuhan (China), the coal boilers have been replaced by gas boilers that guarantee a reduction of CO2 emissions and less air pollution. 

Similarly, in Benifaio (Spain), we set up a system to optimize the protein drying methods by installing a second decanting equipment that reduces the gas consumption during the drying phase and allows us to increase the production capacity. 

In addition, in Keokuk (United States), we have now installed new low consumption lighting with longer service life (LED). They increase visibility and thus safety in our employees’ work environment, combining quality and energy savings. 

Measuring energy consumption and acting responsibly is a major commitment for Roquette, which is why each year our employees work together to offer concrete solutions that improve our performance.
