Dewacoco is able to achieve a "Net Zero" by applying the combination of Solar Panels, Biomass Gasification and Heat Redistribution.
With the recent International discussions regarding environmental issues such as #COP26 Glasglow, the world leaders are being more pressured to implement measures for a better #ClimateChange. This means that companies have to look into more alternatives to fossil-fuel energy. When properly managed, renewable energy is definitely worth the financial investment in the long run, let alone the environmental impact.
“Using waste as a source of fuel”
The Ultimate Recyling System is applied to Dewacoco's Integrated Coconut Processing Plant. Coconut husk which is usually a byproduct of Coconut Meat production, is turned into compacted pelletized form. It is then fed into a Gasification equipment to extract Syngas for feeding power Generators.
What does Net Zero Emission mean?
Firstly, Solar Panels are installed to provide direct electricity for auxiliary uses such as lightings, crew accommodation. However, Halmahera island geographically (where Dewacoco is located) does not enjoy exposure to strong sunlight enough for powering the entire facility.
Thus, the majority of its electricity is supplied by gasifying coconut husk. This process itself emits zero carbon because it does not release any green house gasses and also using no fossil fuel.
Lastly, there are excess heat generated in several points of Dewacoco's production (for example in the charcoal production line) which are redistributed through pipes for Kernel and Husk drying processes.
The above-mentioned system is fully sustainable and does no harm to the environment, effectively contributing to the "Net Zero" Emission campaign by the Indonesian Government.
